We arrived in the United States ten years ago, at that time my eldest son was going into the first year of elementary school, right now this is about to start in the eleventh year of High School as Junior.
I did all my studies until the University in Monterrey, Mexico; so many things have been new to me, from study methods to school aid programs; gradually I have been learning, I like to participate in the activities of my children’s school as a volunteer so that they feel the support and make them more want.
One of the things I’ve learned is that we can support our children’s schools, almost effortlessly, with programs like Campbell’s Labels for Education Program, it’s very easy and it’s a good way to make kids feel like they’re supporting their school and their commune Ad.
Most of the products I have found in Wal Mart, in the photo I show you some of the participating products.
Campbell’s Labels for Education Program works as follows:
Find the labels on the participating products on the back or on a side very close to the barcode. That label you cut it, put together as many as you can and send them to your children’s school.
We have time to put the labels of the participating products together, but we needed a place to store them, so I encouraged my daughter to make a label for Education, a very Latin-style piglet, I hope you like it.
How to make a piggy bank with a Bottle
1 V8 Splash ® Juice Plastic Bottle
2 Foam sheets or letter-sized cardboard of the color you prefer
Foam or cardboard figures for garnish
1 roll or cardboard tube
The foam sheets I got already had adhesive but you can use the regular ones and apply glue or hot glue.
We cut the cardboard tube (from toilet paper) into four parts and cover them with foami; these will be the legs.
We make an extra “leg” that will serve to cover the cap of the bottle and that will form the nose of the piglet.
Cut a foami rectangle about 15 cm wide to wrap the bottle and glue.
We cut a circle of foami (I used a can of campbell’s soup to get the measurement out) and trim it inside the circle to form the spiral. This will be the tail.
We cut two rounded triangles to form the ears and glue them, as well as the eyes, tail and legs.
We decorate with foami or cardboard figures and that’s it!
My daughter gets excited every time I scade some can or bottle with Campbell’s Labels for Education Program, remember that not all are the same, some are black and white, others red or orange, but they always bring the legend Labels For Education.
One of our favorite Products with Latin flavor is V8 Splash juice® mango and peach juice that also participates in Labels For Education®; that was the bottle we used to make the piglet.
Check here if your school participates in this program, if it doesn’t propose at your school’s next PTA or Parent meeting.
My children like to participate, sometimes they take turns choosing the labels, since they are in different grade and each one wants to take them to their living room.
It is important that we get involved in our children’s studies and encourage them to stay in school, there are many Latinos who leave school when we arrive or finish high school, we need to be prepared for the future.
I invite you to participate in the Labels For Education contest® $1 Million for Education.
Have you participated in this program? How much has your school put together? How have you used it?
