Teacher Appreciation Gifts – S’More teachers like you!
Continuing with our Teacher Appreciation gifts this fun gift is perfect for a teacher who loves camping, s’mores or sweets in general! We’ve covered the Coffee lover, and the gardener so far. For that super sweet, loving teacher in your life… “We need S’more teachers like you!”
Thanks to our friends over at Walnut Hollow for contributing the super cute Mini Crate for this project, and for the several other great items as well! I really love these adorable tiny little crates. It’s just the right size for filling with fun treats or treasures. I wanted to keep this crate simple so that our super sweet teacher could use it for whatever purpose she wanted after the gift was received and the yummy treats consumed.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own “S’more teachers like you!” sweet filled mini crate:
- Walnut Hollow Mini Crate
- Chalkboard paint
- paint brush
- chalk or chalk marker
- Cellophane gift bag
- Chocolate bars
- Graham crackers
First paint the crate with the chalkboard paint. I covered the entire crate. Apply your first coat of paint all one direction, I do horizontal first. After that has dried completely, come back and do a second coat in an opposite direction. My second coat was done in a vertical direction. Let dry overnight.
That’s all you need to do! It’s so easy, but you can customize it so many fun ways! Slip a piece of chalk down inside with the goodies and the teacher can use it to write notes, doodle, or customize the crate however they choose when they’re done with the s’more goodies!
I used a chalkboard marker to write our message on the side slats of the crate. These markers can be wiped off with a wet cloth.
Now you can fill the cute crate with your s’more goodies. We filled a small cellophane gift bag with marshmallows and tied it with wrapping ribbon. A few Hershey’s chocolate bars, and a package of graham crackers and your teacher has everything they need to make delicious s’mores!
We are so thankful for the many great teachers we’ve had over the years. Not all teacher’s like sweets so if your teacher likes to garden or loves flowers, check out this gift instead!
And for the teacher who really loves Coffee, we’ve got that covered as well:
