My kid’s school has lots of fun incentive programs to help raise Box Tops for Education every year. A few month’s ago my son’s class won the pizza party for most Box Tops collected at his school. The kids had so much collecting Box Tops!

This past year my kid’s school was able to take funds raised from Box Tops in combination with other fund raisers the school had to help remodel our media center. They were able to add lots of new books, reading areas, new computers and new desks. The space was remolded to be a better space for students to collaborate and be creative together.

My son loves to collect box tops, especially since they have competitions at his school and fun prices like pizza parties! So yesterday my son and I made this fun little Box Top Bot with the Annie’s™ Cheddar Bunnies box.

We started with the materials shown below: a Nature Valley™ Oats N Honey Granola Bars Box, a Totino’s™ Combination Pizza Party Pack Box, tape, silver wrapping paper, scissors and this PDF printable, BoxTopBot. Not shown, we also needed packing tape and a chef’s knife.

To start just make an outline of the smaller box on the larger box like so.

Then cut out the square about 1/4 inch within your line like so.

Next, cut the smaller box like so. Box Tops for Education DIY Box Top Bot @EclecticEveryday

So they’ll connect like this. This way when you feed the bot it will drop down into his tummy.

The next step is to cut the mouth for the bot in the smaller box. I cut a long rectangular shape here.

Then you use the silver wrapping paper (or aluminum foil!) to wrap the boxes.

And then use a knife to cut out the paper where the hole in the box is.

Then do the same thing with the smaller box, cutting the hole for the bottom of the box and the mouth.

Then you connect them with some packing tape. I connect them just in the back.
