Packaging Lesson For Teachers

Try this with your class, scout group, kids, or adult birthday party! Especially good for Earth Day (April).


Two Equivalent Food Items; one with 'over' packaging and one with plain and simple packaging. (Examples: Pepperidge Farm cookies and the housebrand equivalent, boxed cereal and bagged cereal, or string cheese with a corporate character vs the plain wrapped string cheese).



  1. Remove the items from the package and place separately in a plain plastic bag or on a plain paper plate.
  2. Be sure to note which item came from which package (Example, write lightly on the underside of the paper plate).
  3. Blindfold your audience (optional). Ask your contestants to observe, feel, smell, and taste the items.
  4. Ask and vote "Is one item better than the other?"
  5. Discuss. Packaging does not make something better!

Save money buying housebrands forever more.
