Jim wanted to do something small for the teachers for Christmas, so I went looking for ideas on Pinterest. We were short on time, since Jim has only been at the school for about a month, and since he has 19 people on his staff, we wanted to try to keep the cost and time involved fairly reasonable. I found this tutorial for hand warmers (similar to the way I made the rice bags a few Christmases ago). I made them from flannel, and I added a little nutmeg to the rice so they would smell nice.
I bought some big multi-flavor packs of cocoa mix from Sam's Club.
I tied the sets of hand warmers with baker's twine, and attached a little tag with directions for heating up the hand warmers.
