These subway art posters for teachers and treat toppers are a great addition to any end of year teacher celebration.
As summer draws to a close, teachers are spending their final days putting together their classroom, attending meetings and trying to get in a last few moments of quality time with their family. It can be draining and teachers are definitely in need of a little break and a fun night with friends.
We decided to put together a fun evening of treats and printables for the classroom to help them sneak in a little break.
The chalkboard themed treat toppers pictured above can be downloaded at the bottom of this post.
Here’s how to put your treat bags together:
We made three different options. Our goal was to make one that is perfect to give to a teacher (from children or parents), one that can be given to colleagues and another that teachers can use for parent volunteers.
These are SO easy to put together, we promise they will be simple even if you aren’t crafty!
1. Print the Treat Topper file. (just click on the blue underlined wording, your pdf will open on your screen and you can click print)
2. Cut apart the tags. Simply cut into four rectangles – we included lines to make it simple.
3. Gather your supplies – you need small treat bags, scissors, stapler and candies you will be filling the bags with. We chose M&M’s® Peanut, Life Savers® Hard Candy Variety and Skittles®.
4. Fill your bags about 1/3 full with your candy.
5. Fold over the tops.
6. Fold over a tag and attach with a stapler.

You will end up with a collection of cute treats like these:
We decorated our table using chalkboard signs we created. We used a few of our favorite inspirational quotes – we think these are perfect for a classroom. Or, frame one and surprise a friend on the first day of school.
Once we pulled together our favors, decorations and treats, it was time to celebrate the end of summer! Our evening together helped some take their mind off of the impending school year.What are some ways you prepare for the end of summer and heading back to school?
