Teacher Appreciation Gifts
How about a fun candy gram! My daughter and I did this for a special 6th grade teacher and we really enjoyed making this crazy little project together. We thought about the candy available in the candy aisle and then worked out a fun story telling how much we love out teacher using the candy. When we got to the store, we found a couple of more fun candies to use, so we added to the story. It was so much fun to see how creative my daughter was at story telling! Check out Shauna and she will show you some great ideas to help get you started! You can find more candy puns and candy gram sayings here.
