In our house, Mott’s products are a favorite. Their apple juice and applesauce are consumed several times a week. We were excited to learn that Mott’s has paired with Minions for limited edition packaging and flavors! My boys love those characters and think they are so silly, so it makes enjoying some of their favorite treats even more fun.
We decided that rather than just enjoy our Mott’s products, we would make something really fun with the packaging (and we even made a treat!)
Mott’s applesauce is gluten free and an excellent source of Vitamin C. These are perfect for packing in lunches and picnic baskets. The containers are also fun for crafts (like the Minion goggles in the tutorial below!) Their juice and juice drinks are also gluten free with no artificial sweeteners. They are also an excellent source of Vitamin C. Mott’s juices and juice drinks come in several varieties and not all are apple. They also have Wild Grape Surge and Fruit Punch Rush juice drinks.
We used the Mott’s Apple Juice and Mott’s Wild Grape Surge to make ice pops reminiscent of Minions. You can also use the Mott’s for Tots Mixed Berry. We used Mott’s Applesauce Containers to make the fun craft below.
Minions Mott’s Goggles
*This project should be made by adults as it uses sharp items to cut plastic. Please be cautious when making this craft.
What You Need
- 2 Mott’s Applesauce containers, emptied, washed, and dried
- Sharp knife
- Sharp scissors
- Duct tape
- Black or silver ribbon, thin
- Black elastic
- Staples (optional)
1. Make sure your applesauce containers are emptied, cleaned, and dried. I had my kids eat the applesauce for lunch then washed the containers with the dishes afterwards.
2. Using a sharp knife, make a hole in the center side of the containers, large enough to fit your scissors in then cut around to remove the bottom of the cup and make a ring. I used the band around the center of the container as a guide.
3. Place duct tape up to the rim of the container on the outside and wrap it around the entire ring then cut off the excess. Press everything down firmly. You will have excess hanging over the area you cut.
4. Fold the duct tape over to the inside of the applesauce container and press down firmly. If the tape is not lying flat and sticking cut little slits along the parts that are popping up and you will be able to make them flat.
5. On any side of the cup up against the rim, make a hole using the scissors. This will be used to feed the ribbon through. Do the same for the other cup.
6. Across from the small ribbon holes, on the other side of the container along the rim, use your scissors to make a long slit to fit the elastic in. Do the same on the other cup.
7. Feed the thin ribbon through the small holes from the inside out and tie the two ends together to connect the applesauce containers. Tie very tightly and cut off the excess. I left a little wiggle room to accommodate the bridge of the nose so the goggles would sit flat.
8. Feed the elastic band through either side of the containers in the large slits. Feed from the inside out. Leave a little bit excess so you can adjust the band size.
9. Fit the band around the head of whomever will be wearing the goggles to get the size right. Keep in mind, you will want the goggles to lie as flat as possible. Leave an inch or so extra on either side (you can leave more if this will be worn by multiple people so you can adjust the band size.)
10. If desired, you can use a stapler to staple down the strap of extra elastic to the outer layer of elastic. You will be able to easily remove this if needed and it will prevent the flap from sticking out as well as providing a tighter bond.
I want to thank my awesome husband for being a good sport and trying out the goggles for my pictures!
I decided I would try them too so he wasn’t alone; enjoy this goofy picture of me. Hey, they were fun.
I checked out their craft site and there are so many projects we will be trying. My favorite so far is the jetpack! Visit the link (http://cbi.as/9ilx) for more awesome DIY tutorials. Which one is your favorite?
