I am a teacher and I like to give my students little gifts at the end of the year. These are easy to make in bulk, relatively cheap and are just that little bit educational :-)


  • Gift bags
  • Ribbons
  • Minties, Starburst Lollies, Fizzers, pencils


  1. Put one Starburst lollie, Mintie, snack size chips, snack size Oreo and a small packet of pencils into the gift bag.
  2. Tie up, using a ribbon.
  3. Create the cards with puns for the front - you can either handwrite, or create on the computer and print off.

    Some of the puns I use:
    This year has been MINT
    Thank you for making smiles BURST onto my face.
    You have CHIPPED away at your work,
    You are such a smart COOKIE.
    Don't let your holidays be a FIZZER, make them just WRITE.


You could also use these as a parent to give to your children's classmates.
