It’s easy enough for us parents to cut out the Box Tops, stick them on a collection sheet or in a baggie, and send them off with our child, but I want a little more for Truett. To encourage a little more participation, I’m sharing 3 things you can do to make Box Tops for Education fun!
Box Tops Word Scramble
This is a simple game of “How many words can you make with the letters in BOX TOPS”? I love word games and since the letters are pretty basic, this can be a fun thinking game for the kids. Notebook paper is fine or you can download and print this basic word scramble template to use! The person who makes the most words, wins!
The Price is Right!
Who doesn’t love the Price is Right game? I always loved trying to figure out prices of the different grocery items so I thought this game would be a fun family challenge. ALL these products have BOX TOPS on them and it’s a great way to see what everyone thinks something cost, and what it actually costs. Closest person to the correct total, wins! You can download this Price is Right template here.
Donation for a Donation
This isn’t so much a game but more of a charitable idea. With this, you take a Box Tops collection sheet and have your child collect Box Tops from you, friends, and family. For every Box Top they collect, you can give them a dime or for every collection sheet they fill, you can give them $1, $5, or whatever you want. Now ask your child to take that money and donate it to a charity of their choice or church tithing. They are doing something for school, donating to those in need, and learning valuable lessons.
I love that I can show Truett updates on the Box Tops website, and let him see just how much Highland is earning through Box Tops. It makes him feel good to know that he’s had a hand in those totals and the PTO couldn’t be more thrilled with all the participation.
Be sure to watch for bonus Box Tops on specially marked products like the Totino’s Pizza Pack! All these are found at Walmart and at ours, there’s a seasonal aisle that they’ll put the two packs of cereal on, that also have the bonus Box Tops.
I’d love to know of any ideas y’all use to educate or make Box Tops collecting fun!
