Hi lovelies!  Today I'm going to talk to you about the awesome Labels for Education program that provides much needed resources for your kiddo's school, and show you how to make the easiest pencil bag ever!   {More after the break!}

I think most people are familiar with Labels for Education through its partnership with Campbell's and Pepperidge Farm products.  But my favorite participating brand is Bic.  It's perfect because we are going to be doing back to school shopping anyways, why not earn some points for your kid's school?

Labels for Education allows you to clip the UPC label, and turn it into your school.  The school amasses the points and redeems them for awesome things that the school needs.  My son's elementary school uses its points to get new balls, jump ropes, and other recess supplies every year.  

Since the kids are all heading back to school if they haven't yet, they'll need something to keep all those pens and pencils in that you just bought, which earn points for their school.  Let's use some stuff you already have around the house and make a pencil bag!

You'll need:

  • A plastic bag (quart sized) with a sliding closure
  • Duck tape
  • Scissors

 Cut your bag roughly in half.

Lay it flat and wrap duck tape around it.  Leave some overhang at the bottom and really press it together so it adheres not only to the plastic bag but also to itself at the bottom.

That's it!  So easy, right?  These are a fun craft to do with the kids since it's so easy and customizable.  They'd make a great party activity, too!

You can find Bic products at most any retailer, I got mine at Walgreens, in the office supply aisle.

Before you head out shopping, head to Labels for Education's website to print out some money-saving coupons!

There's even a contest going on right now: 1,000 schools will each win $1,000!  I've entered and really hope my son's school is a winner!  Enter your kid's school here!
