Want an easy project for a young child? Collect box tops or pop tops.

Box Tops for Education can be found on many cardboard food boxes, such as cereal boxes. If you bring these box tops to most public schools or to some private schools, the school receives a dime per box top.

Aluminum pop tops can be found on soda cans.

If you bring these pop tops to Ronald McDonald House, which provides a temporary home for families with ill children, the charity can sell the pop tops to fund its programs.

Note: Plastic bottle tops are not a legitimate collection item.

A common misconception is that if you collect over a thousand plastic bottle tops and bring them to a hospital, you can get a day of free chemotherapy. This is entirely false – plastic bottle tops have no value and hospitals do not collect them.  If you’d like to read more, visit this link.
