7 Uses for a Pringles Can
For those of you who have been following Boy Mama Teacher Mama for a while probably figured out that I have a thing for Pringles’ cans. Not sure why, but something about them appeals to me and I love to make things with them. That said, I now present…7 Things to Make with Pringles Cans!
- Before beginning any of these projects make sure your can is clean and dry.
- Projects may use either a large or small size Pringles can.
- Ideas that come from previous Boy Mama Teacher Mama posts have a link to the original post for directions and further details.
Pringles Can Instrument
I got this idea from Learning4Kids post, Tin Can Music Makers.
Here is how we did it:
- Clean and dry a large size Pringles can.
- Put 1/4 to 1/2 cup of rice (or peas, beans, popcorn kernals etc) in the can.
- Cut the end off a balloon and stretch it to cover the top of the can.
- Cut strips of paper and glue them to the can. I chose simple, bold stripes, but you can use any shapes, colors or materials you like to decorate the can.

Using three small sized Pringles’ cans, I created these writing utensils holders. I printed the template and glued them to the cans. I have a fourth label for scissors ready and waiting, but need to eat some more chips first…. 🙂
