Get Your Kids Excited About Helping Their School with Box Tops

My daughter had a great summer playing with her cousins. School is almost back and my niece will be starting Pre-K and my nephew will be starting Kindergarten. Since they live in a different boroughs my daughter won't be seeing her cousins as often as she did in the summer. She was kind of blue that she didn't get to go to school so I got her a book bag and school supplies for us to use while I home-school her for the year. I also got her excited about collecting Box Tops for her cousins.

Since my sister has two kids going to school and I have one going in next year we know how important and easy it is to collect Box Tops to help get much need money. For each little Box Top that you collect and give to your school you will be giving them $0.10 in spending money that they can use for whatever they need. As my sister and I were collecting them we wanted to find a way to keep the Box Tops safe while the kids transferred them to their schools. I came up with a cute little pouch that could go right into the binder and not get lost.

All I did was get a little binder pouch that they could easily clip into their binders. I printed this LOGO resized it and cut it out. Then I used some packing tape and pressed two layers on top to fully cover with the edges of tape going outside of the logo. Then I centered it onto the binder pouch and pressed it on. Now the kids know that this binder pouch is just for Box Tops.

It is super easy to just go to Walmart and pick up the items like the ones for General Mills® that participate with the Box Tops program. Now you can collect even more with Bonus Box Tops in select items like the General Mills® Cookie CrispsTM, Lucky CharmsTM and Cocoa PuffsTM. To get 5 Box Tops for your school with one item all you have to do is purchase the products with the logo below. Then you cut out the regular box top and then cut out the 4 bonus points certificate in the back of the cereal and you get $0.50 for your school.

How do you keep your Box Tops Organized?
