Thank you to Hefty for sponsoring this tutorial. Your kid’s school will love these cute falling leaves Box Tops for Education Collection Sheet and Bin printables for their next contest.
No matter where your child attends school, I can bet they have a Box Tops collection program. When Zoë went to a small private school with less than 30 students, we collected Box Tops using a Box Tops for Education Collection Sheet. We were a parent-run school and every single cent counts.
Even at larger public schools, having enough funding for extras is so important. It seems like each year, funds to schools get cut. Our children’s education is so important and they need the money that fundraising brings in. As much as parents cringe at the idea of fundraising, it’s something that has to be done.
I love that Box Tops are a simple way to give back to schools. No one has to buy anything extra that they don’t need. While we don’t buy a lot of food products with Box Tops on them, I love that they are on Hefty Trash Bags – we DO use those! If you’re like us and don’t buy a lot of packaged foods, you probably do buy trash bags.
Hefty is the only trash bag brand that supports the Box Tops for Education program. If your school collects Box Tops, consider choosing Hefty next time you need trash bags.
Before Zoë was homeschooled, she’d keep her Box Tops in a plastic baggie. That way when her school did a Box Top Collection contest, she could bring them all in to help her class win.
From my experience, most schools have some sort of Box Tops for Education Collection Sheet they use. I created some fun Fall Printables to make collecting Box Tops fun and easy for kids.
I have both a color and black and white version of the Box Tops for Education Collection Sheet. You’ll find both versions in the document below.
I also have a Printable to turn your Hefty Trash Bag box into a Box Top Collection bin. We preach reuse, reuse, reuse around here so we wanted to reuse the very box that gave us the Box Tops. The link to that file is also in the instructions below.
I hope these printables will help encourage your child’s school to collect more box tops for their program this fall.
