"Bear Hugs"

Being that "Love is in the Air" and it's almost Valentine's Day.. I thought I'd go ahead and get started on Peyton's P.E.S.T. gifts! ( P.E.S.T. means a secret Teacher appreciation person) Peyton has 3 P.E.S.T. teachers to whom we make gifts, cards, treats etc. for. We appreciate what ALL the staff does at his school.

I saw this CUTE idea from On Tulip Trail , I had to make my own!

I started with purchasing 3 jars from the Good ol' Dollar Tree! Hey, what can I say they were only a buck each! I wanted to use actual glass jars, but I couldn't find any at the time at Goodwill. Plus, being that my son is in the infant/toddler room, I would hate for the teachers to drop them and break in the classroom! Eeek!

Next, I bought 2 bags of Hershey's Hugs and 1 box of Teddy Grahams.
(This is pending on how big your Jars are, and how full you want them!)

It's Easy Peasy from here! I filled my jars, with bears on bottom and Hugs on top.

I made little tags for each jar, hole punched the corner and tied on a cute Valentine's ribbon.

...and Ta-Da, You're done!! Cute and EASY!! :)
