Food Pouch Cap Bug Craft
With food always comes bugs. Am I right? And the bugs have arrived – just in time for play time with the kiddos! Upcycle your old food pouch caps and make this Food Pouch Cap Bug Craft with your kids for a fun kid activity that will have your kids loving everything creepy and crawly!
I hate wasting. With so many baby food pouches we’ve been going through, I couldn’t just keep throwing the perfect colorful caps away! They’re perfect for crafting, don’t you think! So determinedly, we decided to make a craft featuring these cute little caps. Ready to upcycle and create an adorable craft that your kids will love?
Here’s what you’ll need…
Food Pouch Cap Bug Craft
What You Will Need:
1. Food Pouch Caps – at least 3 of them
2. Pipe Cleaners
3. Googly Eyes
4. Pom Poms
5. Hot Glue Gun
I personally found that the Earth’s Best Organic Caps were the best for threading antennae. Paste on the googly eyes and add a cute little pom-pom nose to the middle 🙂
For the body, I threaded through a “U” shaped pipe cleaner through the caps, then twisted in the back to create little legs. You can alternatively glue the caps together, but much messier…and not held together quite as firmly.
Add more legs by twisting pipe cleaners in-between caps.
Aren’t they adorable? My son loved helped making these! This is a great alternative to throwing those food caps away. Add them to your craft stash until you’re ready to create. And have some creepy crawly fun with these upcycled bugs! Did you make this craft with your kids? I’d love to see how they turned out!

Ha! This is great! It reminds me of the game cooties! My four year old would love this! 🙂 I am also kind of obsessed with bugs, insects, etc… so this is pretty cool!

They are cute! A great craft to make with the kids on a rainy day that you won’t mind throwing away a few days later 🙂

How cute! We go through a ton of the pouches, so this would be easy to save up for. Thanks for sharing!

oh my goodness what a clever idea! We use these cap tops as counters in our homeschooling – love the idea to use them as a craft!
Lori Callies says
We could be thinking of our kids’ futures by requiring the companies to make these tops recyclable, as well as the pouches.
