To make these you will need:

“String Cheese” Mozzarella cheese sticks

Ribbon

FREE printable  Hats or make your own with black paper.

Double-sided tape

Sharpies – Black and Orange

Scissors

First cut out the hats, turn them over and put some double sided tape on them. Place the hat on the top of the cheese stick (on the side that does NOT have logos or writing).

Use the sharpie markers to draw a face on your snowman. Two medium sized black dots for eyes, a orange line for a nose and  five small black dots for a mouth.

Next tie a piece of  ribbon around the cheese to make it look like a scarf, tie a double knot so it stays in place. Trim to appropriate length.

Just below the scarf,  draw 3 medium sized black dots to look like buttons.

Chalk Paint Mason Jar Teacher Gift Idea

Chalk Paint Mason Jar Teacher Gift Idea

I showed you all how to make a mason jar really have character with some chalk paint here. Now I want to show you how to turn that jar into a great teacher gift!

The only extra thing you need on top of the chalk painted jar, is some twine or jute and a saying for the front. When I saw this saying a while ago I thought it would be perfect for one teacher in particular that really goes above and beyond.  I love that it says “Teachers who love to teach, teach children to love to learn.”

I cut that out of vinyl and stuck it on the front of the jar.

For all of the fillers, that is totally up to you!  If you use a short, wide mouth jar, you could add some pencils, pens or markers. This tall jar didn’t leave a lot of options, but I didn’t think about that ahead of time. Obviously, there is no set amount to spend, that is up to you .  Some ideas are some cute pens, lip gloss, candy, gift cards, really, whatever you can come up with! If you go the candy route, you can buy that pretty cheap making it great for a small budget! It really is about the thought!

Turkey Leg~ Fun and Easy Thanksgiving Craft

Looking for a fun, healthy, thrifty snack to tide the kids over on Thanksgiving while they wait for the big feast?  Look no further!  Let them feast on these “vegetarian” turkey legs while they wait!

You will need:

Brown paper lunch bags

1 sheet of white printer paper (per turkey leg)

glue, tape or hot glue

popcorn

scissors

Pop your popcorn and let it cool so you can touch it.  Put a couple of cups (I didn’t measure an exact amount) inside your brown paper lunch bag.  After you have filled it, form the bag so it is rounded, like a turkey leg, not squared like a lunch bag.  and cut off about 2 inches off the opening.

Now holding your paper so it is tall, not wide, cut 7 inches off and roll that.  Mine was between 1 1/2-2 inches thick.  Glue along the seam.

With the remainder of your paper, you will want to cut 2 1/2 inches off.  Same direction as your 7 inches.  This will need to be the same width as the other tube you cut, as it will be fitting on the end of it.  Roll it, glue the seam, and then cut strips about an inch down.  You will have about 3 layers of your tube, Just cut all 3 layers at once.  Glue this to the end of the other tube.

Take a pencil and begin to roll these little strips outwards like this.

Stick the other end of your “bone” into the paper bag.  You can now use a small amount of glue to seal it.  I did it holding the bag upside down and gluing as close to the edge as I could to keep the food and the glue from touching.  I don’t know if it matters with hot glue, but I didn’t want to take any chances.

Hold it there and let it dry for a minute.  That is it!  You are done!
