How I Use Box Tops For Education To Teach Family Values

BOX TOPS

 

One of my top priorities with my kids is to teach family values. Some of the most important values to me are caring for the planet and giving back to the community. I believe that if I can instill these values into my children through our discussions as well as through everyday family activities, they will be upstanding and well-adjusted citizens of the world when they grow up.

To teach family values, I don’t do anything big or profound. Instead, I keep it simple and on their level by incorporating things that they are familiar with, like the Box Tops for Education program. Our family faithfully collects Box Tops every year. Through the years, I have taught my kids the importance of the Box Tops for Education program, and the huge impact the funds received from the Box Tops benefits their schools. As a result, they have developed the spirit of giving back. In fact, my kids are now the ones who actively seek out Box Tops for Education products to purchase when we go shopping.

The kids are even alert for special opportunities to earn more Box Tops for their school. My kids were really excited this year when they saw the specially-marked products that earn 5 Box Tops during our back to school shopping at Walmart. They knew that with all of the school supplies, food, and other products we had to purchase to prepare for the school year, the bonus Box Tops meant more money for their schools.

I don’t have to cut the Box Tops out or anything – my kids willingly cut the Box Tops from the packages, keep count of them, and prepare them to turn into their schools. And since the schools always tell the students of the new classroom equipment and updates that happened from the funds received from the Box Tops submitted, the kids are always so excited to tell me about it with pride.

I use the Box Tops for Education program to teach my kids that it is a great feeling to know that you can help make a positive difference in your community. I can always tell that they feel good knowing that their dedication to collecting Box Tops year-round helps their schools—and even future students—in the best way possible.
