{Primary} ‘Take a Break’ Teacher Birthday Gifts

When I served in the Primary Presidency several years ago the President found Birthday Coupons to give to the teachers on their birthday. The coupons were for a ‘Sunday Off’ so that they could go to Relief Society/Priesthood. Well, I’m back in Primary and asked the President if we could do something similar for our wonderful teachers.
Today I would like to share what I created for our teachers.
LDS Primary Teacher Birthday Gift
I began by searching for ideas on Pinterest (gotta love Pinterest!). I was on the search for Birthday Gift ideas for the teachers as well as ‘Thank You’ ideas for substitutes (post & printables to come soon).
As I was scrolling through Pinterest I came across a cute printable (found HERE) for a Kit Kat bar. The printable was for school teachers and it wrapped around the entire bar, but I liked the phrase on the printable ‘You Deserve a Break’.
I decided to use the ‘Kit Kat’ idea along with the coupon for our gifts.



I saw a few different versions of the ‘coupon’ on Pinterest, here is one teacher appreciation coupon on Sugardoodle. I decided to change a few things, so I got to work creating my own coupon and a tag for the Kit Kat.

Here is the finished product! What do you think?

I had some clear plastic boxes that I thought would work great. I decided to use the Kit Kat miniatures and added a few to the box and then wrapped the box with some twine (ribbon or string would work great too). I punched a hole in the ‘Need a Break’ tag and tied that on to the string. Then I slipped the coupon underneath the string.

You could also buy the full size candy bars and place the coupon on top and tie some string/ribbon around it and add the tag.
No matter what you do I’m sure your Primary teachers will love it! Because who wouldn’t like chocolate and a Sunday off?!?

Would the teachers in your Primary love to receive this fun coupon and treat for their birthday? Today I am sharing these great printable. All you have to do is click the link below and print!

And to all you amazing primary teachers out there…Thank you for all you do.
“No greater responsibility can rest upon any man [or woman],
than to be a teacher of God’s Children.”
{Pres. David O. McKay}

You may feel like your calling isn’t as great or as important as some other callings, but I think yours is the greatest. 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

    Thank you for such a cute idea. I bought a box of full size Kit Kats today, and plan on using your printables and giving these as teacher birthday gifts this year in primary. I think they are going to love it!

    1. So glad you like the idea, Brooke! I think your Primary teachers will like it also. 🙂

    I clicked on the links you provided and clicked the download button and it doesn’t download. Is it something I’m doing wrong? I would love to be able to download this, it’s adorable!

    1. Hi Rebeka! Nope, you are not doing anything wrong. For some reason my Box links don’t want to work very much. I am trying to slowly move all of those files over, but there are alot! 🙂 I will email them to you, and I have updated the link. Thanks!

    I love this idea and was hoping to use it for this Christmas instead of for birthdays. Is there any way you could make one that says Merry Christmas instead of Happy Birthday?

    1. Hi Amber,
      I will work on that and email it over when it’s done. Would you like it a little more “Christmasy” looking? Thanks!

      1. Amber

        Sorry, I thought I replied days ago! Whatever you decide on the design/look will be wonderful! I really appreciate your willingness to work on it during such a busy time!

        1. I’m sending it over right now. 🙂 Thanks!
