Making a Difference with Box Top$ Education

Every year I always encourage my little one's to help with saving Box Top$ to donate to the school. My little girl always helps cut them off the boxes and she has been doing this since pre-school and my little boy has just started this year.

I feel this is very important and it allows us to be able to help the school with stuff we are already buying everyday. In helping with Box Tops school's can earn over $50 million dollars.

Box Tops of Education was created in 1996 by General Mills as a way to helps kids and schools. Since Box Tops first started till now schools have earned more than $375 million to help with books, school supplies, playgrounds, equipment, computers and anything else a school needs to keep going.

You can help your school by clipping Box Tops off of stuff you already buy on a daily basis. There are over 240 brands that have Box Tops on them. You can go here to see all the ways you can help your schools at

You can also follow them on Facebook and on Twitter so spread the word to all of your friends and family.

Lowes Build and Grow Clinic 1/22

This week at Lowes Build and Grow they are making a Ball Toss!
This looks like this would be so fun to make and of course play with the kids.
Build and Grow starts at 10am on Saturday Jan. 22nd.
You can go here and sign up, there are only 3 steps to sign up.
The best part it is free who doesn't like to do free and fun things with the kids.
They also have a picture of the project they are making on Feb. 12th.
I won't get to go this week because my little girl has cheer camp at this time.
So, we will just go on the next one.
