Teacher Appreciation: GIANT Teacher Candy-Gram

 Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week in our school district,
and each day the room mom had a theme for the day.
I really like this idea. The PTA at our school last year did the same
thing and I liked it on a school wide basis better because
then if you have children in multiple grade levels you don't have to remember
3-4 different themes each day.
One of our themes was "a note or a card". At first I thought I'd just do a giant card,
but then after thinking about it I thought - a teacher appreciation candy-gram would be awesome!

It was so much fun to make and put together and hunt down specific candies.
Some of the candy bars I didn't find were a 5th Avenue bar, small serving Sprees and Whoppers.
But the day after we gave this to JT's teacher I stopped at the 99 cent Only Store
and found all three of them. So, next year I will for sure just hit up the dollar store
first to find all the candy first.

I bought the poster board at Walmart and used a Sharpie to write the message.
I hot glued the the candy to the poster and it worked really well.
I love my hot glue gun!
