My son’s 3rd grade class decided to give their 29-year old male teacher a class gift consisting of small gifts from each child.These were placed in one large box for the teacher to open.Sounds like a wonderful idea…until you sit down to figure out what to get the male teacher (have I said yet, that the teacher is a man?) So all the usual “girly” gifts are out. And in comes the decorated candy bar teacher appreciation gift.
Luckily, the teacher likes coconut candy. So I ran to the store and purchased a large “fancy candy” coconut candy bar. We grabbed our stash of colored paper and stickers.
My son and I then decorated the candy bar to look like a chalkboard. This allowed my son to write a note on the “chalkboard” to his teacher.
It was a quick and easy craft project. And a pretty cute one, too.
