Halloween Hand Gift

I am once again in charge of Teacher Appreciation at my children’s elementary school.  This means I need to come up with little gifts and things for each holiday to distribute to all teachers and staff members of the school.  There are about 100 such teachers and staff which makes for some intense and budget-friendly crafting!
For Halloween this year I was so glad to run across this post from The Queen’s Card Castle on Pinterest!  Such a fun way to give some candy to teachers, neighbors, friends, Visiting Teachees, co-workers, etc!  And they are quick to put together.  Get your hands on some surgical gloves (I got mine at Walmart), put a roll of Smarties in each finger and fill the rest with whatever candy you want.  I used small hair rubber bands to keep them securely closed then tied on the tag with some ribbon and added a festive bat ring.  It’s all about presentation! :)
Below I’ve created two different tags for you to use …. one for a teacher and the other is generic for everyone else.  To download right-click and save!
I really was amazed how quickly these came together!
Have a wonderful Halloween!

    I love this idea! I am also doing teacher appreciation for our elementary school this year. Could you also post the tags you used “Let us give you a “Hand” for being such amazing teachers & staff!” or email it to me? If you have it!

    Hi! Love this idea! Would you mind emailing me the “Let us give you a “Hand” for being such amazing teachers & staff!” printables?

      I filled 50+ hands for the teachers and staff at my children’s school with the candy. They are going to love it! Looking forward to receiving the tags for the the teachers and staff if you have it. Thanks so much. :)
