    Posted by  ·  April 25, 2012

    Hello Skip to My Lou readers! I’m Jen from Tatertots & Jello and I am so excited to be here. I love Cindy’s Teacher Appreciation series each year and it’s such an honor to participate!!

    I think it’s always fun to give teachers a gift that they can use during the summer on their time off. We love smoothies and I thought it would be great to use a play on words with juice and a gift certificate to a juice bar.

    Here’s what I came up with (also with a little help from my husband and his mad Microsoft Publisher skillz). We moms are so busy, this is an easy gift to make and show YOUR child’s teacher(s) how much you appreciate them!

    Here’s what you do:

    • Print off the printable below.
    • Cut out the tags.
    • Punch a hole in the corner of the tags and string ribbon through.
    • Have your child sign their name.
    • String the tags through the ribbon and tie on the cup.
    • Fill the cup with candy and a gift card. Teacher Appreciation Labels (Final)

    Thanks for letting me stop by and share my teacher appreciation printable!! I have loved seeing all of the AMAZING ideas so far!!

      How can I change it to read our instead of my creative juices? We want to give it to teacher from the class.

      Sears has those Copco tumblers on sale today for $5.99. I just picked up 4.

      Thanks for the awesome idea! and the free printable! I used this for both my children's teachers. We don't have a Jamba juice near us but I purchased a can of Jamba Juice and put it inside each cup with the skittles- very cute! Thanks a bunch for sharing!

      So cute! I just bought sonic gift cards for the teachers and this will be a great way to give them!

      Thanks for sharing this cute saying! Jamba Juice gave us a great price for Jamba's for all our teachers and staff that will be delivered tomorrow! I just cut and hole punched 50 of these! Great timing!!!

      If you don't want to do a gift card, another option is loading it with the single-serve juice packets like Crystal Lite. You can buy them at the same place as the cups.

      This is such a wonderfuly perfect and thoughtful teacher gift!! Thank you so much for not only sharing such a great idea but I am over the moon that you included your lovely printables, I love this! And wanted you to know you so saved me from pulling my hair out tonight, time just got away from me with work and activities and when I realized I still had to get teacher gifts done by the morning I was starting to stress. Mine are done, packed up and ready to go :) Thank you so much!!! Andrea

      Thanks for sharing the printable label! I am not good with stuff like that! For those looking for these tumblers - I've also seen them in Big Lots, Walgreens, Dollar General Store and even Kroger! The prices range from $2 to $10.

      Thanks for sharing the printable too! I will make one of these for my son's art teacher. Too bad I can't afford to do a big giftcard, but I will buy a nice bottle of juice and attach this to it. One of the other teachers is getting a glass bottle of starbucks with a "Thanks a latte" label. :)

      Pretty and Thoughtful too! What a great way to show your appreciation:)

      Love this idea but we don't have a juice place nearby. I am going to use a Target gift card in the cup and substitute "Thanks for keeping me on Target this year!". Thanks for the inspiration.

      Simple and cute idea! I love the saying. I also like giving teacher's a gift card so they can go do something fun for themselves after giving so much. Thanks for sharing!

      These are very pretty and what a clever idea!

      Hi Ericka!!

      I got the cups from my local grocery store in the seasonal isle. But you can find them at most any chain store in the seasonal isle with the picnic supplies :)

      I think they were $1.99/each.

      This is awesome! Makes me wish my kids were still in elementary school because it was so much easier then. @Ericka those look like the Copco cold cups. They are available in most stores, I know I've seen them or similar ones at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Fred Meyer, Target. Most places that sell coffee cups/tumblers also have these cold cups, some are double layer insulated, most of them have a rubber grip(the purple on the side.)
