It may be Summer but back to school season is in full force already. For some odd reason, I love everything associated with back to school especially the deals you can get.

A is starting full-day kindergarten this fall. Even though he’s been in PRE-K for the last two years, Kindergarten is such a milestone, especially since going full day means going to a new school. New school = new teachers.

Kleenex Back To School Bin Supplies

That’s why we decided to create a DIY back to school bin and we’re stuffing it with Kleenex® Facial Tissue. Throughout the year, this will help his new teacher and TA’s. Kleenex Back To School Tower

Schools are always looking for donations of necessities, especially during the beginning of the school year. The best part is you can find them at your local Costco. Since back to school shopping will be in full force, members will be able to save $4 on the Kleenex Facial Tissue bundle pack from 8/9 to 9/2 at Costco. Kleenex Facial Tissue at Costco is Made to Give More which is great. These bundles come in a 10-pack and have 43% more tissues per box which is the best way to go. You can even store some of the boxes at home, because we all know flu season will be starting up in September.

One of the great reasons I love buying the bundle packs is they are Box Top friendly. Each bundle includes 15 Bonus Box Tops which help my child’s school. Now that A will be starting fresh in a new grade school, it’s even more important to participate in every way that we can.

Getting the kids involved is essential so they know they are contributing to a great causehelping their own school.

To make the DIY box, you will need:

  • Crate or bin
  • Markers
  • Kleenex Facial Tissue
  • Classroom essentials (pencils, sticky notes, crayons, etc.)
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Construction Paper for Sign (kids can decorate their own)

Voila, there you go. Plus, it has all the essentials that your teachers especially need when having to clean up messes.

    This is so cute! Maybe add a little gift card or candy bar for the teacher (just for fun)? Or just a cute little card – your kid could help decorate. I love this idea though, and I’m sure the teachers will adore it too!

      Awesome idea! I bet teachers can never get too much kleenex and hand sanitizer!

    I love this idea! You can’t have too many tissues in the classroom 🙂 Coming from a food allergy mom perspective, I’d also add baby wipes to use at snack time, as they’re more effective at getting rid of food proteins off hands and faces if soap and water aren’t available.

    This is such a great idea! Schools are so in need of supplies, and Kleenex is a great brand.

    Awesome idea! I bet teachers can never get too much kleenex and hand sanitizer!

    A 10 pack! Wow! I don’t have children, but that’s awesome even to keep around the house for cold season! Thanks for the info!

    I love this! I remember always running out of tissues half way through the year in elementary school and it was such a pain!

    Love the idea of a DIY box for school. I like that canvas box/bag you used – that would be great for storing toys at home too!

    I’m a special education preschool teacher and I can honestly say that Kleenex is the most important thing I need for the classroom!!! I always get excited when parents donate 🙂

    This is such a great idea! I bet the teachers would love this!

    I homeschool, so we don’t really have to worry about back-to-school, but I love this idea. I have so many friends that are teachers that would love this! People are so stingy and quick to complain about school supplies lists and these teachers need all the help they can get.

    I like this idea a lot! This is a great way to stay stocked and teach some lessons along the way!

    This is a great idea and it is nice to have kids involved. Teachers would appreciate this. I t would also lend itself to the smooth operations of classes.

    What a neat idea. If my teachers had a wish list I’d get things from that to add also. This would be great to organize classroom wide to help get things for the whole room.
