Teacher Valentine

I have to admit, I kind of procrastinated this one (no big shock there!)  I was going to get a bag of Hershey's Treasures and put a little note on it that said "You are a real treasure", but when I went to the store, I couldn't find any treasures.  I was going to a different store this morning and see if I could find some.  But then I remembered that I had a couple of bags of Valentine M&Ms and a can of chalkboard spray paint, so...
I put a vinyl heart on an empty jam jar, then sprayed it with a few coats of chalkboard paint.
After the paint dried for about an hour, I peeled the heart off so that you could see what was in the jar.
After I rubbed it down with some chalk and wiped it off,
Miss Bear wrote her teacher's name on it
And signed her name on the lid.
I love it!
It helps that it is filled with my favorite treat!
One of the regular sized bags fit perfectly in this fun little jar...
...too bad.  I was hoping for a few left overs to sneak!

I guess I'll just have to tear open the other bag...
