Upcycling Nutricia Cans

Wait, wait! Don’t throw out your formula can yet!

You can reuse your Nutricia Metabolics formula cans for arts & crafts and more! First, fully clean out the can. Second, follow our easy and fun tips below.

Be sure to clean your cans out thoroughly before reusing them. We recommend wiping out the cans with a damp towel. Let them sit out until they are 100% dry. You’re ready to give them a new life!

Pot for Flowers and Plants

Decorate the outside of the Nutricia can and carefully poke a hole at the bottom of the can to allow for drainage. Fill with potting soil and plant flower seeds or re-pot another plant.

Musical Instruments

Interested in crafting a set of maracas or drums? Take the plastic lid from the can and grab a pair of sturdy sticks and start drumming right away! You can also make a maraca out of Nutricia cans by adding beans or pebbles for a neat sound effect.

Piggy Banks

Turn an empty Nutricia formula can into a cute piggy bank for your child or even for yourself! Paste pictures of your kids onto the outside, and then use a box cutter to create a small rectangular cutout in the plastic lid. Then, start saving!

Decorative Storage

Use old Nutricia cans to hold toys such as building blocks, marbles, or toy cars. You can also reuse formula cans to keep your scrapbooking or craft items in one place.

Re-used Nutricia cans make great storage containers for buttons, ribbons, safety pins, beads and other small items you have lying around. You can even print out pictures of these and then use them to decorate the outside of the can. Customize the outside of the can with printed pictures of what’s stored inside.

Holiday or Birthday Gift Basket

Paint the outside of the Nutricia can for the holiday season or someone’s birthday, and fill with treats, holiday goodies or a personal gift. Think about attaching a handle for easy carrying.

And More: playsets, headband organizers, teacher gifts!

Re-used cans are able to be repurposed into so many crafts and activities for your family. If you have used your Nutricia packaging in a creative way, comment below. We would love to learn from you!
