Lego Head Baby Food Jars

This post will be a quickie....but did you ever wonder what to do with your baby food jars? We are hard core recyclers in our home, so I always try to think of how to re-use regular items. After some thought, I came up with these:

LEGO Heads!

Now of course, if I had boys, these would be a hit! But I don't (yet). Instead I am going to bring these into my classroom and either put them in my treasure box, or use them as a place to put paper clips, tacks, rubber bands or other office supplies. If I had more time, I would have put some different felt patterns on the lids to represent hair. Maybe over the summer I will experiment.

They are so simple to make. Just a coat or two of yellow acrylic paint and any facial expression of your choice! You can paint it on, or better yet, use a Sharpie!

Happy Kraftin!


  1. What a cute idea! My girls would love those. I don't have baby food jars anymore, but I might have to go buy some and make these, very cute! I'm pinning this.

  2. Love this! I'll be making them for my son who has many "special" Lego pieces he is always setting aside (read: leaving out) so they don't get lost in the big Lego buckets. Hurray! Now we can both be happy!

    1. Those special pieces always have a way of ending up missing right? Glad you have a solution!

  3. So adorable! Love this idea! My girls are older, but I think I will start having my friends save me their baby food jars so we can make something like this.
