Kiss Your Brain - Monday Made It

Linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for another Monday Made It!


Only one craftivity today - but I'm pretty excited about it. While Pinteresting, I found a picture of a "Kiss Your Brain" jar, which is a jar filled with Hershey Kisses. I LOVE this idea- when my students are doing something exceptional, I love to reward them with food! They love it too... So I knew I had to make one!

I took an old gum ball container (from Party City) and tried to rip of the labels. This didn't work, so I just decided to cover them!


Then I made some cute labels for the sides and top, whipped out my Modge Podge, and got to work. 


When I Modge Podge'd, I slathered it all over the container, as I usually do when I use the goo... However, since this was a clear container, it dried messy. So I had to clean some of it off. My tip: glue the label down first, then Modge Podge a 2-3cm thick border. I also MP'd all over the label to kind of laminate it. It worked, but some spots got crinkly. I'm not too worried about it though, because it turned out SO CUTE!


I'm currently the only one kissing my brain right now... But I'm sure my students will enjoy this once the school year starts!

Like the labels? Tell me below and then download HERE!

  2. Cute idea! Goo Be Gone usually will do the trick on removing sticky labels. I hate when I can't get those sticky labels off!!!

  13. This is not only cute, but "Too Stickin' CUTE"! I teach kindergarten and have used Dr. Jean's "kiss your brain" since my years teaching preschool. This will eliminate everybody kissing their brain when I am giving positive academic feedback to one specific student! LOVE! Thank you for the cute labels that just happen to coordinate with my classroom design!! YEAH!

  22. When I clicked on the link to print the label it took me to a goal tracking sheet, not the "Kiss your Brain" label.
