As the school year begins, our family will be working to raise money for our classrooms by collecting Box Tops for Education™. We’ve already been shopping for Box Tops products that featured bonus Box Tops as part of this sponsored campaign, and today I’m going to share how we’re going to stay organized with this fun collection station and chart.
I admit that in years past we’ve just shoved the little cut out badges into a drawer and I’ve done my best to keep track of them and turn them in, but this year will be different! Each Box Tops for Education that our family turns in is worth 10¢ for our school. That may seem small, but with over 500 kids attending, those dimes can add up fast! Our family and school have a special thankfulness for Box Tops since they helped pay for new playground equipment for our kids!
It’s really quite simple to create your own Box Tops for Education Collection Station. Here’s what you need to do:
First, print off this handy Box Tops collection chart. Your kids will have fun tracking the Box Tops they collect, and your family can see how your work totals up for a donation for your school. Each month has a spot to mark the number of Box Tops you collect, then you can calculate monthly totals and a final school year total.
Next, find a magnetic cup to use for your collection. I had a white board organizing cup that works perfectly because it can hold some small scissors and a pencil for clipping and counting. The other side can hold the Box Tops. You could also use a plastic kids cup or small mason jar and attach a strong magnet to the back.
Then all you have left to do is shop for Box Tops products at your local Walmart store, and clip the Box Tops from the boxes. The cup is a great spot to store your Box Tops until it’s time to turn them in to your school.
Best of luck, and happy collecting!
