Teacher Emergency Kit

The grandkids come over every Wednesday morning during the summer. The two oldest especially like to do crafts so I try to find something to work on each week. This week we made Teacher Emergency Kits.

We found white mugs at the Dollar Store. (I think Walmart has them too.) The kids each took a black sharpie and wrote the name of their teacher on their mug. Then they took colored sharpies and decorated the mugs. They thought it was cool to put their name and year on the bottom. ☺

When they were finished I put the mugs on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. The directions I found online said to put the mugs in the oven and then turn on the oven to 350. It said the mugs should heat up slowly. We "baked" them for 30 minutes and let them cool down.

After patiently waiting for the mugs to cool the kids finally got to fill them. They thought their teachers would like some fun pencils, pens, chocolate, mints, lip balm, a highlighter marker and a bookmark. (You could fill these mugs with any number of fun things for a teacher.)

We then added a cute "Teacher Emergency Kit" tag that I found on the Crafting Chicks site. (It's a free printable!) The grandkids are planning on giving these to their teachers on Open House Night next week.

I think it would also be fun to do Birthday Plates or Get Well mugs...what would you make?
