What to Do With Those Pouch Caps

Posted by 33 on

If you have a baby or toddler in your home, chances are you're a food pouch family. Those food pouches were our daughter's best friends until she decided that squeezing all the saucy yum onto herself or the floor was more fun than consuming it. But that's another story. So, what to do with those pouch caps after the snack time is done?

We've been collecting all the leftover pouch caps over the past year and have a ton, thinking one day, we're going to come up with a brilliant way to use them! Sure, it would be easy to go to the Web and see what other people are doing with those pouch caps, but how hard is it to get crafty? Besides, even our cat, Cricket, could come up with a new use for them:

Okay, good idea, Cricket, but that just means more for me to clean up. So, with all those caps piling up - and it becoming increasingly clear that I'm no crafty mom - it's time to surrender to someone else's creativity. Big thanks to Ms. Rockabye for finding some cool pouch cap crafts for us.
