Teacher Appreciation Week, Day 2

For the second day of Teacher Appreciation Week, my children are taking cookie jars to their teachers.  This is a post with two projects in one because for one of my daughter's class, she took a cookie jar full of cookies to her two teachers (Project #1).  However, for the other daughter it was a class gift for which I supplied the cookie jars for the two teachers, and all of the students brought a cookie for each teacher to fill her cookie jar (Project #2).

Here is Project #1:

The lids have labels too:

Another picture just because I can:



Project #1 Materials:
  1. Clear glass or plastic jar with lid.
  2. Ribbon
  3. Paper for labels
  4. Printer to print labels
  5. Double stick tape
  6. Cookies
Project #1 Directions:
  1. Print the labels.  To make these, I simply went to Microsoft Word, drew a rectangle, and typed the label: I am one SMART COOKIE because you are my teacher! Thanks!
  2. Print the "to" and "from" tags.  To do these, I again used Microsoft Word, drew a square, and typed the "To" and From" information.
  3. Cut out all labels.
  4. Using double stick tape, attach the labels to the cookie jar.
  5. Fill the jar with cookies.
  6. Tie a bow around the top.
  7. Give to teacher.

Now for Project #2: the class cookie jar gift.  To do this, one parent needs to supply the cookie jar(s) as shown here:

Project #2
This project also has labels on the top of the jar:

Labels for top of cookie jars

When you tie the ribbon at the top of the jars, make sure the jars can still open easily since students will be bringing cookies to put in the jars.

Make sure the lid can still be opened after the ribbon is tied.

Now, because the students are to bring a cookie to the teacher to fill their cookie jar, everyone's cookie needs to be wrapped individually in a clear cellophane bag (as shown below) or a clear zip-top bag.

Because I seem to be label happy, I made a label for the cookie in the cellophane bag as well (directions are below).

Project #2 Materials:
  1. Clear glass or plastic jar (large because it will be filled up by the entire class).
  2. Paper
  3. Printer
  4. Ribbon
  5. Double stick tape
  6. Cookie
Project #2 Directions:
  1. Print the labels. To make these, I simply went to Microsoft Word, drew a rectangle, and typed the label: We are SMART COOKIES because you are our teacher! Thanks!
  2. Print the "to" and "from" tags. To do these I again used Microsoft Word, drew a square, and typed the "To" and From".
  3. Cut out all labels.
  4. Using double stick tape, attach the labels to the cookie jar.
  5. Tie a bow around the top.
Project #2 Extra Information: Make sure the parents of the students in the class know to bring a cookie and which day to bring it to school.  Also, have them wrap their cookie in a clear cellophane bag or zip top bag.  I used a medium sized cellophane bag, cut the length of the bag to better fit the cookie, then closed it with a special label with double stick tape (see picture above).

Please share or "pin" this project if you like it, thanks!
