Craft Ideas Using Baby Formula Scoops

July 5, 2013

I use them for my snowman's pipe.

First, paint any color you want. Smear glue inside the scoop, then stuff Spanish moss inside. Let dry. There, you have a pipe!

I took on the task today of organizing my craft room. I found a huge amount of formula scoops from when my kids were babies. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do with them or make with them? My niece is having a baby soon and I was thinking of making something for the shower with them. Any ideas? Please help.

Stuff with some fabric scraps or Styrofoam cut to fit, cover with a piece of fabric glued on, and have a mini pin cushion for diaper or sewing pins. Make holes in the handles of several, and string on a ribbon or key chain to make a rattle type toy. Make a mobile by making holes in the handles, and decorating the scoop with baby type stickers inside and/or outside. Suspend decorated scoops from a baby size hanger on ribbon or yarn.


Wash thoroughly, and fill with chocolate to use as favors, layering colored and regular chocolate, perhaps decorating the tops with baby type sugar decorations and wrapping in netting tied with ribbon. If you do not have a drill, you can make holes in plastic by heating an ice pick or screw driver in the stove burner, and pressing through the item.

I put a scoop in each of my dry pet foods & use these to measure out the amount of food I give my pets daily. I also keep one in my can of coffee to measure that & one in my sugar & flour to use when baking.


They are also nice to attach to cooking mixes when given as gifts at Christmas. The ones I use hold 1/4 cup each.

I appreciate the ideas. The only thing is that the scoops are tiny. They hold about teaspoon and the scoop is about an inch deep. The circle is about the size of a dime. I have soooooooooooo many of them. Keep the ideas coming. Thank you!
