Upcycled K Cup Peacocks Craft

Upcycled K Cup Peacocks CraftWe are recyclers in this family. We always have been. We try to recycle or reuse everything that we can in this house. If you look around our home, you will see jars being reused and glass all over the place from everything like jelly jars to bathroom products.

If someone can be made out of it, we will make it. If it needs to be recycled, we put it in our recycling bin. Everything that gets thrown out first gets analyzed to see if there can be another purpose for it.

Upcycled K Cup Peacocks

These fun and colorful peacocks are a great way to serve up a treat to little ones- popcorn, jelly beans, nuts, pretzel sticks, cereal, Skittles or any other small treat that will fit. They are a great way to squeeze a little more use out of the empty cups that would otherwise be tossed in the trash.

Once cleaned and decorated the cups make the perfect size for a little treat to share with the class, surprise neighbors, or while the kids are watching tv. Dont waste the grounds in the cups either, toss them into your compost bin, or make a yummy and effective body scrub from

Supplies Needed:

  • Clean, empty k cups

In October 2013 Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. launched Care To Recycle® after learning that many people often forget to recycle in the bathroom, where a majority of the company's personal care products are used. The program aims to remind people to complete the cycle of care by recycling the product package when it is empty.

This year, Care To Recycle® partnered with Scholastic to create a national school curriculum and contest to help educate students and their families about the importance of recycling bathroom products.

Please visit the Scholastic Care To Recycle® microsite for parents of students/kids in grades 1-3 to learn more about your recycling options.
