As you probably already know, Valentine’s day falls on Sunday this year. Since this doesn’t happen every year, I thought it would be nice to give our wonderful Primary teachers a little Valentine. I decided to do something a little different than chocolate. I finally decided on a Mint Valentine.

I’ve seen the ‘Mint Valentine’ idea before, and thought it was a pretty cute idea. Who doesn’t love mints? Especially these yummy berry mints. 🙂 My kids LOVE these things. They were begging me to part with one of the packages I bought.

I got to work creating a label. Since we have some men teachers, I decided to keep it simple. I ended up making 2 different sayings (both very similar), one says ‘We MINT to tell you how BERRY grateful we are for all you do!’. The other one says ‘We MINT to tell you how BERRY grateful we are for you!’.

I created the ‘grateful we are for you’ first, but then I decided that Primary teachers do a lot,  so I wanted them to know how much they are appreciated for all their hard work. That’s when I decided to create the other option ‘grateful for all you do’.

Want to make some ‘mint valentines’ for your teachers? Here’s what you’ll need and how I did it!

Ice Breaker Mints (if I had thought of this before I would’ve purchases the mints from Amazon, good deal!)

Sticker Paper (optional, but makes applying much easier)

Scissors or a Circle punch (2 3/4″)

First, you’ll need to decide which label you would like to use and then print it out onto plain paper or white sticker paper (I use Avery 8165 white shipping labels). Once your labels are printed, cut each one out using scissors or a 2 3/4″ circle punch.



To finish your mints just apply the label to the front of the container…and you’re done! You could always add a little extra by tying some cute string or ribbon and adding a tag with the specific teacher’s name on it, it might help make it a little more personable. 🙂

All you have left to do is hand them out to those amazing teachers!


I thought of inviting our teachers up to the front of the room and have the children sing to them. I thought that might make them feel a little more loved.
