Box Tops for Education Giveaway! (NOW CLOSED)

box tops

It’s official!  The 2009 – 2010 school year has begun!  Even though we homeschool, I still experience the stress and excitement of back-to-school time! Purchasing school supplies, lesson planning, and getting back into a normal routine (as in, waking up before noon….) are just a few of the things I’ve been scrambling to do these last couple of weeks.  And now it’s here – my son is an official kindergartner!

Even though my son doesn’t go to public school, we still collect box tops.  It is such a great way to help the schools, and we can’t just throw them away!  After all, each box top is worth 10¢ to a school!  That may not sound like much, but did you know that Box Tops has helped America’s schools earn over $250 million in the past 12 years? You can find Box Tops on products all over your home like Cheerios, Huggies, Totinos, Ziploc, Cottonelle, and more!

When you visit the Box Tops Website you can enter to win a back-to-school prize pack as well as a chance to win 5,000 Bonus Box Tops for your child´s school, free Pillsbury Toaster Strudel and Totino´s Pizza Rolls, and school supplies from Box Tops´ newest partner, Avery.

I also have a “Top This” prize pack to give away to one of my readers courtesy of My Blog Spark!

  1. As a teacher, I love preparing for the first day of school. The fresh supplies, books, decorations… plus, all the new faces!

  2. once that rush to the bus is over and i get to sit at the table with absolute quiet and that first cup morning coffee.

  3. my favorite thing about the new school year this year is that my baby starts kindergarten this year and gets to go to school with her brothers, so she feels like a BIG girl now! having her brothers walk her to class is so cute to watch!

  4. The first days of school were exciting because it’s a new school for my daughter, and she was able to make friends right off the bat!!

  5. My favorite thing is the smell of the new crayons. I always get a new pack for the house as well as the kids for school. There is just something about new crayons 🙂

  6. What a great giveaway! I’m the Box Top Coordinator for my school so I’m hoping that brings me luck.

    My favorite thing about the first days of school is the excitement about the coming year and getting those last few items we need.

  7. I always enjoyed getting all of the new supplies and trying them out. Heck, I still do today and I’m a mom to two little guys, one is 6 and in the first grade and the other will start Kindergarten next school year.

  10. Ah, the first day of school…I loved the look on my son’s face when he walked across the crosswalk and saw me standing there on the other side waiting for him after school! He grinned and ran straight for my arms!

  11. I love how everyone is wearing their new clothes and the school looks so fresh and new the first day!

  12. Our favorite thingS about the first day of school are taking pictures of getting on the bus, and being able to use all the new school supplies, and wear all the new clothes, meeting the new teachers and seeing the new classroom!

  13. Today was our first day of kindergarten and I cried like a baby. Maybe next year the first day of school will have be less tearful.

  14. My favorite thing about the first day of school is getting a phone call after school from my grandkids telling me all about their day.

  15. I love picking out the cutest 1st day of school outfit along with an adorable hairdo. I love it! I get more excited for the 1st day of school than my kids do!

  16. I home school, too, but I love being able to get fresh school supplies for the kiddies. Nothing like opening a new pack of construction paper or markers.

  17. I loved that my son got the teacher he prayed he would get (a sweet 7 year old prayer)…and that he had several friends from his previous year in his new class…so that made him and I both very happy and content!!!

  18. I love buying new clothes for school. The kids and I spend quality time together AND I find some really good deals.

  19. I love how organized you have to get for school, I am slightly ocd. And secretly I love(at least for a few minutes) how quiet the house is when both my kids go to school and just to contradict myself, the worse part is how much I miss them!!

  20. My favorites are all the activity the night before and seeing the excitement on my children’s faces as we pull up to the school on the first day.

  21. I love taking pictures in front of the same tree so we can see how much they have grown and changed in the last year. I also love when my son gets off the bus and is so excited to see me and tell me how awesome his first day was.

  22. The most wonderful thing about sending my 3 boys back to school (11,13,16) is that someone else will be feeding them! (all of our school children eat free, courtesy of the county’s high poverty rate). Yay! Fewer convenience foods to buy!

  23. I love that on the first day of school, everything is new! New pencils and crayons, fresh new notebooks, clean desks – I love it!
