If you have school aged children there is a pretty good chance you know what collecting box tops is all about. Each year when my son returns to school, it is never very long before the school begins encouraging you to send in box tops if you have them. That’s when I began to notice the little box top logo on my favorite foods & household items! From that point on, I carefully cut each one off the packaging it came on and set it aside in plastic sandwich baggie.
Collecting tops has become somewhat of a game to my son because the school has an internal contest that awards the class with the most box tops an extra recess time. You can imagine his excitement when we’re at the grocery store and he sees his favorite cereal sporting the box top logo!
The little logo is found on sooo many food & pantry items like Hefty® and Reynolds® and can sometimes even have extra box tops printed on the package as bonus. I always keep the baggie handy in the kitchen because I never know when I may finish something with a box top on it.
I already have a pretty good collection going – I’m hoping that will help JP get off to a good start towards his class getting a free recess period!
If you would like to participate in raising money for your local school, simply clip the box top logos on your packaging and turn them over to your school. Each box top is worth .10 cents – not much, but it can really add up fast if the whole school participates! Last year our school raised somewhere between 5 and 6 hundred dollars! That’s an insane amount of box tops!!!
School is on the horizon and the Hefty® and Reynolds® box tops for eduction is running a sweeptakes! Daily prizes will be awarded – tons of products and 10,000 ebox tops to 5 lucky schools! Will yours be the one?
