This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and text are all mine.
My kids started school a little over a week ago, and we are slowly getting back in to the swing of things. My oldest is a 4th grader this year, and my baby started Kindergarten. It has been nice having 4 years of experience as an elementary school mom under my belt, but watching my last child leave the nest has been bittersweet!
We absolutely love our elementary school, and do our best to support it via fundraisers, volunteering and so on. Life can be hectic, but we do our best. One of the easiest ways that I have found to support our school is via programs like Tyson Project A+™. It is so easy to clip and save Tyson Project A+™ labels from participating Tyson® products! Our school runs challenges once or twice a year where classrooms compete for a pizza party or other prize, based on the number of labels that they bring in. I have gotten in to the habit of clipping the labels as soon as we are finished eating the product, and placing them in a small plastic envelope that I have stuck to the inside of one of my kitchen cabinet drawers. That way, when the time comes to send the labels to school, I know exactly where they are.
For every Tyson Project A+™ label submitted, Tyson® will give the school cash to use on whatever it needs. It’s easy to find Tyson® products with the label – you can find examples here.
Last week I ran to Walmart to finish some last minute shopping and I decided to pick up two bags of Tyson® Any’tizers®. My kids love the Popcorn Chicken- Any’tizers® snacks and the Homestyle Chicken Fries – Any’tizers® snacks. I like having them on hand for quick meals or after school snacks. Walmart always has a great selection of Tyson® products, and I know that I’m going to find the varieties that I am looking for. I also like the price. You can learn more about Tyson Project A+™ at Walmart HERE.
I don’t know about you, but I have a really hard time getting my kids to eat protein! Tyson® Any’tizers® snacks because are made with all-white meat and that makes this mama happy. Sometimes if we are super short on time between school and our next activity, I’ll bake some Tyson® Any’tizers® snacks and throw them in to a brown paper bag for the kids to eat on the run. They feel like they are getting a fast food treat, and I’m happy that I saved myself a trip (and several dollars) running to a drive through.
Having easy to prepare meals and snacks on hand in the freezer and using simple programs like Tyson Project A+™ to earn money for our schools are two things that I have learned to do to make me feel a little bit happier and saner during these crazy back to school weeks. Coffee doesn’t hurt either! ;-)
I would love to hear if you collect labels for this program in support of your school!
