I made this for my daughter's first day of student teaching. Inside I put:
Teacher Survival Kit
Orange (jelly beans) - orange you glad to be part of the best school?
Paperclip - to help you hold it together.
Eraser - to remind you that everyone makes mistakes.
Starburst - for that extra burst of energy when you need it.
Button - to remind you some things are better left unsaid.
Bandaid - to heal hurt feelings.
Wiggly eye - for times you wish you had eyes in the back of your head.
Rubberband - to remind you to be flexible.
Shiny penny - to remind you everyone shines in his own way.
Gum - to help you stick to it.
Crayon - to color things bright and cheery.
Candle - for when you’re up late grading papers.
Laffy Taffy - to remind you to keep your sense of humor.
100 Grand Candy Bar - so you’ll be paid what you’re worth.
I used Sesame Street Seasons cricut cart and cut out the backpack, the butterfly and books/apple cuttlebug dies.
