Cereal-ously Cute Teacher Appreciation Labels from mudpiestudio

Does your child have a teacher that you just love?  Or is there a teacher to whom you just want to say, “Hey thanks for being crazy good at teaching these kids all day because there is NO WAY I’d have the patience for that?!”

Well I know lots of teachers like this!   So, I’m always looking for creative ways to say thanks, and I came up with these super fun tags that are sure to make ‘em smile!  Cereal-ously!

I made four different tags with fun doodle borders and printed them on bright neon printer paper.  Then I attached them to those mini little boxes of cereal.

Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Printable Labels for Treat Bags

St Patrick's Day Labels from mudpiestudio

When I came across a box of green Lucky Charms I figured there were only green marshmallows inside, and I was right! So I created these fun labels for some lucky little leprechauns! 

St Patrick's Day Labels from mudpiestudio

I found a ginormous family-size box for $3.98 at a neighborhood Walmart  grocery store and was able to do 65 treat bags using only one box! Here’s just a few…

St Patrick's Day Labels from mudpiestudio

I used 3x4 clear craft bags (found at Michaels or in the jewelry craft section at Walmart).  I love this size because it is just enough of a snack to count, but also small enough that several labels fit to a page so it doesn’t take use up a lot of ink or paper.

St Patrick's Day Labels from mudpiestudio

The tag reads “May all your days be LUCKY.”

I think they’ll make three classes of wee one pretty happy!

12 Days of Christmas – Quick, Easy & Inexpensive Gift Idea

Last year I made these fun little Santa-tizers for some teachers when I did a 12 Days of Christmas gift theme. I think they make great little stocking gifts, party favors, co-worker gifts, etc.

These are just 2 oz. purse size sanitizers that you can find inexpensively, especially during flu season.  I used clear tape to attach the tag directly over the label on the bottle.

Monster Pencils for Halloween Class Favors

Happy October!   Is everyone ready for a fun and easy craft?  I found this super fun idea on 36th’s blog.  How cute are these do-it-yourself monster pencils?!

All you need are some fun pencils, colored pom poms and googly eyes.  I used my hot glue gun to hold everything together.

Halloween Monster Pencils from mudpiestudio.blogspot.com

Some of my monsters have one eye and some have two.  Since I’m making these for a class, the teacher gets the only one with 3 eyes.  I figure the teacher needs the most eyes to keep track of all their little monsters.  =)

Fun, easy and inexpensive party favors with no calories!

Halloween Treat Bag Labels

Last year I created some Halloween treat bag labels for a carnival at my kids’ school.  Y’all remember this?

Halloween Treat Bag Labels from mudpiestudio.blogspot.com

Well, they seem to be gaining some online interest thanks to Facebook and Pinterest, and I’ve seen requests for a mix of all four.  So this year, I’ve created just that!

Halloween Treat Bag Labels from mudpiestudio.blogspot.com

“Monster Mash” is a combination of all the goodies in one bag!  Chocolate chips, cereal, marshmallows and candy corn.  I know plenty of little monsters that would love this!  Don’t you?!

Digital files for all of these labels and more are available on my Etsy!

Camping Theme Breakfast & Party Favors

So we treated the teachers to a back to school camping themed breakfast.  Here’s a few of the table centerpieces I created to add to the festivities…

This one includes a mini-fir tree from my Christmas stash, some Lincoln Logs and crayons I borrowed from my kids, and a couple of battery operated tea lights.  Did I mention the decor was pretty much free stuff I found around the house?

Camping Theme Teacher Appreciation Breakfast

This centerpiece includes another mini fir tree wrapped in burlap, a “tackle box” (aka my daughter’s new pencil box), and a paper sack filled with “fish bait” gummy worms.

This was an easy addition – peppermint “Owltoids” in a glass bowl:

Another prop from my daughter, I perched this teddy bear in an iron-garden-trough-thingy I found in my craft stash.

This centerpiece was easy to make with a few paper sacks with scrapbook paper made to look like owls. I found the idea for this on Pinterest here.

I still haven’t found a use for this square grassy wreath I found at Tuesday Morning last year.  But it worked for this centerpiece with a lantern and candle I had in my living room.  I added burlap and baker’s twine to the candle along with a battery operated tealight. Easy peasy.  And free.  =)

I also made tent cards to decorate the tables.

Here’s a look at a few of those tent cards up close:

And this one is by far my favorite.  Friends still makes me laugh. Tweaked from the brilliant art found at this campsite.

Finally, I made some S’more treats as a party favor for all the teachers and staff.  Just take two of these deluxe graham cookies and a stacker mallow…
