Here you will find a few Tips for Collecting Box Tops, including free printables, that will help save you time, and earn your school money they can use for whatever they need.
Recently I told you about how you can earn BONUS Box Tops on participating General Mills products at Walmart (Click the image below to read the previous post). Now I’m going to share some tips for collecting Box Tops and keeping them all organized – and how to get your family and friends involved, too!
Participating in the Box Tops for Education program means less fundraisers – because let’s face it, no one needs over priced rolls of wrapping paper. Am I right?
At the beginning of the school year, we send a letter to our children’s grandparents and aunts asking them to please collect Box Tops for us. Since they live all over the country, we provide an envelope, pre-addressed and stamped so they can send them back to us. Then we send out a reminder email in November asking them to please return the envelop to us. Then we send them a new one, and repeat the steps in March. (Box Top payments are made twice a year in December and April).
Many schools have a monthly collection prize, but we find that this twice a year collection means less hassle for our friends and family. You can download my September template letter here:
Once we have all our Box Tops collected, we sort through the pile. The kids are very involved in this part. We make sure each is neatly trimmed and that none have expired. Then we print off collection sheets and start gluing or taping them to the sheet.
You can download this sheet, which once full will be worth $4.00! This sheet is great for Kindergarten and 1st Graders especially since it’s counting by ‘tens.’
These collection sheets are so helpful to your Box Top coordinator. Be sure to double check dates, and fill in all available spots. Don’t add more Box Tops to the sheet than there are spots, because that complicates things. Trust me!
