The sun is still shining, the pool is still glistening, but something is different? It is quiet, not a splash or sound to be heard. Kids here in South Florida are all ready back in school. They are now spending time reading, learning, and if they are like my kids catching up on their sleep. When school begins everyone’s routine changes. Alarm clocks and grumbles are heard and kids are packing up for the school day.
My daughter was so excited to get back to school! She missed her teachers, her friends, and her school work. Yep you heard me right, she missed her school work. She has such a thirst for learning. Another thing she couldn’t wait to do was to turn in all the box tops she had been collecting over the summer. Just because school ended doesn’t mean we stopped snipping those little rectangles of savings for her school.
Box Tops for Education
Honey said she had to have more, such a little over achiever she is. So the weekend before school started Honey and I went to Walmart to play a little game we call “I Spy Box Tops”.
I Spy Box Tops
It is super easy to play. We go up and down each isle with each of us browsing a side of the isle to see who can spy the most box tops. Then we get to decide which box tops we want to take home with us. This is one of those games that is easy to play and easy to win because there are so many box tops to be found. The hard part is not taking everything home! When we win our school wins as well!
As you can see we hit the jack pot with Bonus Box Tops which are worth 5 Box Tops. They were on many of the items we were looking to purchase such as breakfast items, snacks for lunches, and dinner.
Bonus Box Tops
We have been so lucky to have such wonderful teachers over the past many years. To show my appreciation I love to do what I can to support our teachers and school. Collecting Box Tops for Education is such an easy way to support our school since they are on many of the products that we love and buy every week!
Each box top is worth .10 for our school and Box Tops is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs. Did you know that Box Tops for Education has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since it’s launch in 1996? Wow that was before my oldest son was even born. I am so proud to know that Honey and I are doing our part to support her school. If you take a peek in our pantry you can always find soup cans, cereal boxes, and more with little small rectangles cut out of them. We love to cut them out as soon as we get them and throw them into our Box Top stash!
Our school has some great Box Top drives to get the kids excited to help. Last October the school gave a pizza party each week to the class that brought in the most box tops. My daughter weighing all the odds choose to save up all that she had and bring her’s in during the last week of the contest. Stop by your local Walmart today and keep an eye out for products with bonus box top, which are equal to 5 box tops.
