{Freebie} Teacher Appreciation

I made this bee-themed gift for my son’s First Grade teacher.

Partly I was inspired to use bees because his teacher has a running BUMBLE BEE theme in her classroom (for example, each child has a bee with their name on it on the wall, and if they misbehave they ‘lose a stinger’ or are ‘out of the hive’).

And partly I wanted to go with bees because I found this cute beehived-shaped tealight holder at Target. It was in the Dollar Spot area, so they may not have it regularly.  If you can’t find one, a yellow or black gift bag with a bee tag on it would do just fine (and hold more, as well).

In keeping with the bee theme, I filled it with Burt’s Bees products. I purchased the ‘Head to Toe’ kit at Target for $13. I tied a ribbon around the tealight holder and put as many of the items as I could into the jar. You could add a gift card or any other small item to the jar if you prefer.

I gave it to her with the bee letter that you can DOWNLOAD FOR FREE HERE.

I had my son write his teacher’s name at the top, and sign his name at the bottom. I also added the date in small print.

  • Wow, that is a cute gift! Can’t believe you got those Burt’s Bees products for only $13!! It’s super expensive here in Canada!

    Great gift!

      Well they are travel-sized items. You could also buy one full-size item and stick it in there instead. I did see some full-sized items on clearance at the local Kroger grocery store, but they were all acne-specific items, and I didn’t think his teacher would appreciate that! LOL!

    Thanks for the great idea. I am attaching this poem to some small honey jars. My little one has a bunch of teachers with her therapists and all so this really makes it special:)

      I love that idea! And locally-grown honey is supposed to help your allergies.
      Thanks for your feedback and additional idea for using the bee teacher items!


  • Love this! I’m making this now. What fonts did you use?
