As we soaked in all of the craziness of drop off on the first day of school, I noticed something. There were quite a few kids bringing first day of school gifts to their new teachers. Is this a new tradition I had no idea of?
Is my kid now doomed because she didn’t bribe her teacher right off the bat?!
I think teacher appreciation gifts are the most appreciated when they don’t expect it. Or that’s what I’m telling myself so I don’t feel like I started the year off with a “mom fail”.
I’ll be sending Bean to school with one of these free teacher gift printable “If you give a TEACHER a cookie…” on a random Monday when her teacher least expects it. 😉 They’re quick and easy to put together, you can pair them with the most delicious soft chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted (recipe coming soon) and an ice cold glass of milk.
Speaking of an ice cold glass of milk, did you know that per 8 ounce serving, dairy milk is the top food source for three of the four nutrients (calcium, vitamin D and potassium) that are most likely missing from American’s – including kids’ – diets?

Now without further ado…
Free Teacher Gift Printable: If You Give a Teacher a Cookie…
- Mason jar
- “If you give a teacher a cookie…” free printable
- White card stock
- Baker’s twine
- Hole punch/scissors
Print out your tag using my “If you give a teacher a cookie…” free printable on white card stock. If you have multiple teachers to give a gift to, this is perfect because there are 4 tags per page. This download is for personal use and subscribers only. Thanks!
Cut the tag out with scissors and punch a hole in the top.
Attach the tag to the jar with some cute baker’s twine. I cut out approximately one yard so that I could wrap it around the jar a few times.
Fill the jar with your favorite delicious cookies, seal the jar by twisting on the lid, and you’re done!
As you might be able to predict, this is a take on the classic book, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie…”. And you know how that sentence ends… they’re gonna want a glass of milk!
We’re big on milk in our family (I even wrote a blog post in my early days of blogging confessing my love of milk, no lie).
Not only do we love the taste, we love how milk is an easy way to get natural, high-quality protein plus other nutrients per 8 ounce serving into our kiddo’s diet.
Plus, dairy milk protein is a complete protein. Most plant proteins are incomplete, which means they’re missing some of the amino acids your body needs.
We had a few leftover cookies from our teacher gifts that we couldn’t help but dip in some ice cold milk that I picked up during my last grocery store run 😉
If you’re also a big fan of milk, chocolate chip cookies, and easy mason jar gifts, look no further for your next teacher appreciation gift!
What kind of cookies would you fill your jar with? Are you as obsessed with milk as I am? 😉 Let’s chat about it in the comments below. And don’t forget to visit MilkLife.com for more content and tutorials!
