So you have just cut that tiny little Box Top off of those Fruit Roll Ups…now what? Where do you store the Box Tops? Our family has been collecting these little paper ‘dimes’ for over 10 years and I was looking for an easy solution to my question, when voila, I came up with this easy DIY Magnetic Box Top Keeper!
We are huge supporters of the Box Top program that our school takes part in every year. I love knowing that the everyday products that I purchase on a weekly basis can help to give back to my kids’ school. Each Box Top is worth $0.10 to participating schools and Box Tops has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996!! And I can also say that my Kindergarten classroom has personally benefited from the money earned through Box Tops.
On a recent shopping trip to Walmart to purchase lunch snacks and other items, I picked up a box of gallon-sized Ziploc bags (which also have a Box Top on them) and some round magnets. It’s time to clean up my mess of Box Tops rolling around in the junk drawer and create a collection spot for all of them. I love how this project was quick, simple, practically free, and makes it easy to store all of the Box Tops, until collection time at our school.
I especially love when Box Tops has Bonus Box Tops!! (These bonus ones can be found on select General Mills products at Walmart) That equals more $$, but also usually means a bigger Box Top that takes up more room in my drawer. But they fit just fine in my new Magnetic Box Top Keeper!
Gallon Ziploc Bags
Step 1: Put glue on backs of round magnets.
Step 3: I used Sharpies to write on the outside of the bag.
And now I have an excellent place to store all of our Box Tops that we are saving…our perfect spot is on the side of the refrigerator!
