Does your school collect Box Tops for Education? Ours does. In fact, my fourth grader’s role on Student Council is chair of Box Tops collection! And this committee of 3rd-5th graders are saving Box Tops each month in order to build a “Be Kind” mural at our school’s entrance.
Fortunately, with warm weather upon us, Nestlé® Pure Life® water bottles are Box Tops eligible! These fun 8oz. water bottles – now with SpongeBob packaging – make collecting Box Tops even easier and our school one step closer to being a Be Kind campus.
Mural aside, how can we teach kids to be kind? In light of our school’s Box Tops mission for 2019, here are 10 kid-friendly ways to teach kindness today.
How to Teach Kindness to Kids with Box Tops
We are lucky to have a local organization – Ben’s Bells – that teaches individuals and communities about the positive impacts of kindness and practical ways to show kindness daily. Ben’s Bells designs brightly-colored “Be Kind” murals as public art pieces, designed to support everyday kindness.
It is such a mosaic mural that our school is collecting Box Tops for, like the ones found on packages of SpongeBob Nestlé® Pure Life® water bottles!

10 easy ways to teach kindness to kids
There can never be enough kindness in our world. And the best place to install everyday, small acts of being kind is with our children. Incorporating kindness is easy when you start with these 10 simple ideas:
- Help a neighbor clean up their yard by pulling weeds or planting new flower beds
- Gather your friends and pick up trash on the school playground or make it a family project to clean up a local park you visit often
- Say “hello” to neighbors as you pass or smile at the stranger on the street
- Donate your gently used books to a local organization that collects books for children and schools in need
- Purchase an extra can or two at the grocery to donate to a local food pantry
- Carry a granola bar in the car to give to someone asking for help on the street corner
- Write a note of gratitude or kindness to someone — just because
- Paint “kindness rocks” as a family and leave them around town to cheer someone up
- Volunteer at a local animal shelter and help walk dogs waiting for their forever homes
- Write positive chalk messages on the sidewalk to make someone’s day just a little bit brighter
- And, as a bonus idea, collect Box Tops!
Clipping Box Tops from eligible products, such as Nestlé® Pure Life® water bottles, is another easy way to help local schools get funds for educational needs such as school supplies, classroom technology or school projects such as Be Kind murals.
find Nestlé® Pure Life® SpongeBob water bottles at walmart
My kids only take water bottles with them to school so it’s a fun surprise for them when mom packs an 8oz. bottle of SpongeBob water bottles in their lunch boxes.
As a parent, I’m always happy to support brands that support schools and education via Box Tops.
I also feel good to serve my family Nestlé® Pure Life®, which is sourced from wells or municipal supplies then put it through a 12-step quality process. This means that it meets strict standards for bottled water.
I found these fun Nestlé® Pure Life® 8oz. bottles with SpongeBob packaging at my local Walmart, in the water aisle.
