5 Reasons Why You Should be Clipping Box Tops
If you are a parent of school-aged children, chances are you have probably heard of Box Tops for Education. If you are not familiar with Box Tops, it is a free program where your child can earn money for their school. Each Box Top is worth .10 and can be found on 100’s of brands like Hefty® and Reynolds®. Schools can then redeem the Box Tops for money to use on school supplies. Just last year our small school was able to earn a whopping $363 in Box Tops money!
Before I had my children, I admit I never paid much attention to Box Tops. Now, as a mom of three school-aged children, I specifically purchase products from brands like Hefty® and Reynolds®. I love that they help to give back to my children’ school and community. Twice a year our school sends in all Box Tops collected and the results have been pretty amazing! Who would have thought that .10 could add up so quickly?!
If you are not clipping those Box Tops on your foods, I urge you to start. Even if you are not a parent, you could donate your clipped Box Tops to help a school of your choice in your community.
Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should be Clipping Box Tops:
Kid’s Learn About Responsibility: I like to roughly tear off the Box Tops, and put them in my kitchen draw. Once I have enough to turn into their school, I let my kids clip them, count them, and place them in a Hefty® Slider Bag.
Teaches Counting Skills: My now second grader loves to help see just how many Box Tops we managed to save during each collection period. She has a blast counting by ones to see how many we have, and then by tens to count the dollar amount the Box Tops are valued at as a whole.
Schools Earn Money: These days between budget cuts and the rising costs of school supplies teachers and schools have it rough. Our school has around 20 kids so every extra dollar helps them to stay afloat and purchase books, software, and more.
