For us school starts soon! I always like to send Josh into school with a little something for his new teacher. Gifts have to be fun and practical. And really, can you get any more practical than school supplies? I’ve seen the candy bar cards ALL over Pinterest over the years, so I decided to make our own version using Sharpies!
My son called this the Ultimate Pun Challenge and we were very happy with our result. This was SO easy, inexpensive and I think it will be easy to re-create for teacher appreciation and end of the year cards as well. Plus, I think his teacher will love it!
First, you need to go get your supplies. You can find Sharpie markers at Staples. All Sharpie Fine and Ultra Fine markers will be on sale starting August 10th while supplies last!
The only other supplies you will need are poster board and tape. We also included a Staples gift card with our gift so that his teacher could pick up more Sharpies and other back to school essentials!
The instructions are really simple. Write your note onto the poster board. Make sure you leave enough space for a Sharpie to fit in place of some of the words. Then, just tape the Sharpie in place.
Simple huh? Here is our letter:
Yellow (Hello) Mrs. Miller!
I just red (read) that you were going to be my teacher! All of my black (back) to school blues (blues) vanished.
The other kids will be green (green) with envy. Orange (Aren’t) you excited about this coming school year? I am! Pink (pinky) promise it’s going to be great.
P.S. In case this didn’t earn me any brown (brownie) points, maybe this gift card will help!
Because every teacher needs a Staples gift card! :)
And that’s it! SUPER easy! Plus, it’s a gift that will be loved and well used! Starting August 10th all Sharpie Fine and Ultra Fine markers will be on sale at Staples! (While supplies last!)
