This is an inexpensive, simple and fast teacher gift for any occasion.
Crayon Gift Box
Here's what you need:
~a big box of crayons (I used a 64 pack of crayons.)
~acrylic paint and brush
~a sturdy box that can stand the weight of 64 crayons (I picked up one for 50 cents at a local dollar store . . . apparently they sell things at other prices than $1.00.)
~a hot glue gun
~the teacher's favorite candy or school supplies (I gave my daughter's teacher a little "get-to-know-you" questionnaire at the beginning of year to find out a few of her favorite items . . . like candy.)
2) Measure out or eyeball the number of crayons that you will need on each side. I lined mine up to create a rainbow effect, and I also made sure they were all turned the same way. Start hot gluing each crayon on to the box.
3) Do that all the way around. When you come to a corner, glue the corner crayon to the crayon next to it not the box.
This gift works for teacher birthdays, first-day/last-day of school gift or just a random "thank you for teaching" gift.
