Halloween Gifts for Teachers: eat, drink & be scary


I drank a lot of mocha frappuccinos this summer in preparation for this year's teacher Halloween gifts. I am sure these were partially to blame for the weight I gained between July and October, but we all need to make sacrifices, right?

I did not account for the amount of M&Ms it would take to fill 15 of these (I've already given a few of these out...the ones in the picture will be delivered today.) Each bottle got about 4oz, then I added lollipops and jawbreakers from our Halloween candy stash. Yep, this year I did not buy the good stuff...no Reese's peanut butter cups, KitKats, Almond Joys....no temptations for me. Sorry, neighbor kids, it is Smarties, jawbreakers, and lollipops for you!

The lid toppers read, "You light up the place with that smile on your face."

Have a spooktacular day!

Going green, I like it! What a great idea. I store embellies in baby jars. I couldn't bare to throw away a couple dozen perfectly good glass containers either! Such a fun idea!
