I am one lucky kindergarten teacher.
Each year I have so many wonderful parents who offer to donate some of their precious time to help in our classroom. I appreciate their generous support and commitment.
When Christmas comes along, I always like to thank them for volunteering. When I saw this post for Chai Tea Latte Mix from Life is a Prayer and this post for Salted Caramel Cocoa Mix from Crafty Staci, I knew just what I wanted to make this year.
This is what you’ll need:
I washed small plastic milk bottles from the classroom for this project:
Create labels on your computer, just using regular paper and cutting it into strips. The font I chose is a free download called Lewis Blues. My beloved Zig pen made the dots.
After filling the bottle with the mix, wrap the label around the bottle and attach using double sided tape.
As always, I was trying to use what I had on hand, since I didn’t have any green ribbon, I found this green striped knit remnant in my thrift store stash to make my own ribbon. Just cut a strip and gently pull the ends so it will curl.
It makes perfect yarn for wrapping packages.
I hope my parent volunteers like it! 🙂

Great Gift Idea – love the homemade touch during the Holidays – thanks for sharing!!!
You’re so welcome, I had fun making them.
So cute! Good job taking advantage of items you already had on hand. It seems like they make the most beautiful gifts. Meaningful and handmade!
Thanks so much. It’s always a challenge to think of something different and not too expensive for all my parent helpers and co workers.
Great idea! The mixes look delicious, and I love the knit fabric ribbons – Brilliant touch!
Thanks, I’ve really been enjoying Chai Tea Lattes lately. I hope they do, too!
Very nice!!! Thanks
So very welcome! 🙂
Love! Those bottles are the perfect size and the labels and ties are adorable!
Perfect for your Salted Caramel Cocoa Mix!!! Thanks for the recipe!! I love it and I’m sure my parent helpers will, too.
This is a great idea! I love how you used the milk bottles – they look like the perfect size!
Thanks! We only got the little bottles for a few days and it seemed like such a waste to throw them away. I was so glad to come up with an idea to make use of them.
Who wouldn’t love to get these? They are useful, and respectful to earth’s resources, and so darn cute! Thank you for the great idea for “yarn”; I can see me using this over and over 🙂
Thanks, Jo! I really wanted to find a use for those little milk bottles. We only had them for a couple of days and now I wish I would’ve saved more of them. I think the t shirt yarn would be fun to crochet with. Have a great week!
What a nice thought! Love this, now going to look up those yummy recipe!
My whole family loved the Chai Tea Latte!
Great ideas. I’m one of those parent helpers but I’m considering giving these to my sons teachers!
Teachers would love them, too!!! Have fun!
These look lovely! Thanks for the inspiration…again 🙂
Oh, you’re so welcome! I hope you’ll be able to use this idea sometime. The drinks are delicious!!
