Ice Breaker Back-To-School Teacher Gift

Ice Breaker Back-To-School Teacher's Gift - Sweet and practical!

I know this is such a cliche but I cannot believe that my son is starting Kindergarten this year. <insert sad face> Where the heck does five years go? Seems like just yesterday we were knee deep in diapers and swaddling blankets. Now we’re entering the world of supply lists, PTAs, sack lunches and of course, Teacher Gifts!

Ice Breaker Back-To-School Teacher's Gift - Facts

I wanted to make a Back-to-School Teacher’s Gift that would be super cute but also practical and compact. Mints for the win! What teacher wouldn’t appreciate some? I added a small booklet of interesting facts or “Ice Breakers” to play off the name of the mints. Super corney, I know!

I created the St. Paddy’s Day Pinch Free Card tutorial as a member of Lifestyle Studios.

Materials

(Update: I switched out the “Favorite Toy” category for “Favorite Hobby” so that the printable could be used by a wider age group. Thanks for the suggestion, Mom2ShimmerandShine!)

Instructions

1. Print and cut out the Ice Breakers Free Printable Labels. Use the included template to cut out the large circle out of decorative paper.

4. Use the Sticky Thumb Tape to easily adhere all the cutouts in place. Seriously one of my favorite tools! It’ll cut your crafting time in half.

5. Stick the large decorative paper circle to the top of the mint container, over a strand of the baker’s twine.

6. Adhere the green label to the center of the label and thread the baker’s twine through. Apply the apple label with a couple strips of Sticky Thumb Dimensionals. Tie off the baker’s twine to keep everything in place.

    This is so unique! I really love it and we can’t wait to give them tomorrow. Would you consider making another version for older kids that says MY FAVORITE SPORT (OR HOBBY) instead of TOY for older kids? Thanks for sharing :)
