Teacher Gift: You’re My M&M Poem & Jar Plus Other Ideas

Pin It

This year my kids and I came up with a Teacher gift idea that’s both sweet and simple – a M&M Teacher Poem attached to a jar filled with M&M’s. I orginally saw this great idea on Domestically Speaking.

All you have to do is get a jar and fill it with M&M’s. Next, write/type out the M&M Teacher Poem and attach it to your jar. You could also place a gift card in the jar with the M&M’s.


I created a printable for the M&M Teacher Poem for you to use. See the end of this post for the link or click on image below.

Here’s the sweet poem:

Last year, my daughter and I made an easy-to-make and beatiful gift for her teacher. Maybe you’ve seen it here already – it was a Colored Pencil Vase. You can also find more teacher gift ideas at end of that post HERE).


Also, if you plan to give a gift card to your child’s teacher, then read about our Creative Wrapping Ideas for Gift Cards post HERE.
