11 Other Uses for Little Green Pouches

Posted on May 08, 2015 by Amanda Holliday | 13 Comments

Our pouches are made to last, but if you love your LGPs as much as we do, they will eventually need to be replaced. Or maybe you started with the Really Little Green Pouches, and your little one outgrew them and is now happily sucking down 7 oz. from the original Little Green Pouch. We've always said that Little Green Pouches aren't just for babies. Here are 11 ways to use Little Green Pouches other than purees, yogurt, applesauce, and smoothies.

No-Mess Frosting Piping Bag

Make this healthier frosting recipe and add frosting to Little Green Pouches for easy, mess-free cookie and cupcake decorating. 

Arts and Crafts

Fill your pouches with just the right amount of paint to reduce waste (and spills), and let your little ones have fun finger painting. Or, use them to make your own refillable paint brush. Bonus: seal them up, and keep your paint from drying out. You can also make some fun projects with extra caps you have laying around. 

DIY Piping Bag for Frosting Cookies & Cupcakes

Let the kids get involved in decorating Christmas cookies, birthday cupcakes and more without the mess of paper plates, spoons, and knives. Plus, you can mix colors right in your pouches—just add food coloring to white frosting and knead right in the pouch. This is also a great way to avoid those sibling arguments over sharing frosting—give each kid their own set of frosting pouches. Warning: this is not a mess-free cookie decorating option—any time you combine frosting and kids, it will still be messy :) . 

Homemade Toothpaste

Do you make your own toothpaste? Want to? We like the recipe from Wellness Mama because it's squeezable (you know we love anything that's squeezable). Fill your Really Little Green Pouches with this DIY toothpaste for a travel friendly, healthy tooth scrubber! 

Pack Peanut Butter For Your Next Hike or Camping Trip

Have you ever tried to take peanut butter camping? What a mess! Between the jar taking up precious cooler space, needing a knife, and not having any way to properly wash said knife, I wind up smelling peanut butter the entire trip and finding it on everything. The alternative is to bring along single serving peanut butter pouches, which are expensive and wasteful. Our alternative? Fill up a Little Green Pouch with bulk nut butter (or better yet, make your own). And happily squeeze peanut butter on apples, crackers, sandwiches, or right into your mouth. 

Homemade Ice Packs

Someone in your house fall down and go boom? Save your frozen peas for our Turkey and Spring Vegetable Puree or Pea, Edamame and Pear Puree. Keep a few pouches in the freezer filled with water for those unexpected bumps and bruises, or to keep snacks cool on the road. 

Snack Storage

Protect your pretzels and goldfish from turning to dust next time you head to the park or pack snacks for the plane. Perfectly portioned, and so much better for the environment than Ziploc bags. 

Mini First aid Kit

Keep first aid supplies handy by creating multiple mini kits. Keep one in the car, your diaper bag, and purse, and never find yourself searching for a band-aid again. 

Salad Dressing

Do you bring salads to work for lunch? Use your Really Little Green Pouches to store your dressing, and say goodbye to soggy salads at lunch. 

Breast Milk Storage

Panicked because you just found yourself out of breast milk storage bags?  We've been there. And while waiting for our Amazon Prime package to arrive, Little Green Pouches work great!

Homemade Diaper Rash Cream Container

Commercial diaper cream can be made of ingredients that can irritate a baby’s delicate skin. This easy recipe is free of irritants and is great for soothing and softening skin. Just make and store in a Little Green Pouch. Squeeze out to apply as needed for a mess-free application.
