Back-to-school time can be just as stressful for teachers as it is for kids and their families. Help soften the transition, show teachers how appreciated they are and make their first day of school the Best Day of School with an adorable paper apple box filled with a delicious surprise.
Before deciding to stay home with my kids and blog full-time, I worked as an Elementary School Counselor. I loved my job, but let me tell you that it was a glorious day when the PTA announced that they had purchased a Keurig for the teachers’ room!
After that day, every teacher I knew began keeping a stash of coffee pods in their desk. I love coffee, but what I love even more is the warmth of a steaming mug between my hands. The aroma of coffee in the halls and the laughter of children from classrooms made the school feel cozy and warm despite the icy Wisconsin wind outside.

My printer was running low on ink, so I used the dimensions provided on the template to create an apple box with red construction paper. We filled it with red and brown crinkle cut paper shred and a single Portside Blend® coffee pod.
My son’s teacher loved it!
