Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Borrowing an idea from Our Best Bites, the kids and I created some A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E end of the year gifts for their preschool teachers and classroom aides.  (The link has the premade labels as well as some generic ones and some Mother's Day ones.)  So easy and they turned out so well. 

The basic jist is to buy a pull top can of fruit, open the can from the bottom, empty out the can, wash and dry it, fill with some goodies, close the bottom back up with hot glue, then add a label and some ribbon.  We filled ours with strawberry flavored Jello Rainbow Popcorn and Skittles.  (The popcorn recipe calls for peanuts; I never make mine with them.)

The kids helped me make the popcorn, cut out the decorative paper for the labels, glued the labels on the paper, filled up the cans, and cut the ribbons.  

I have to say I like these so much that they may become a traditional end of the year gift.
