Fun Box Top Storage Ideas

The other day I mentioned how we, a homeschool family, still take time to cut out and save Box Tops for Education to help support local schools. It seems strange to some, but we’re not against traditional schooling, we just know that our children learn differently then they’d be taught in a classroom setting.

But we still support teachers.

We use a simple mason jar to collect our Box Tops right now, but as I was searching around Pinterest to learn more about how the funds are raised and used, I found tons of fun collection container ideas. Here are my ten favorite…
