More Ovaltine Please....

We're an Ovaltine family.  It's a request from both the kids and husband on a daily basis.  Mainly in the afternoon, once my 1st grader is home from school.  I realized the other day, when throwing away the empty container, I'm throwing away a useful item...what could I do with it?

So, here's what I did:

Step 1:
Removed plastic label sleeve
Step 2:
Clean container completely, and let dry
Step 3:
Get out my Chalk Paint (in a paint can, not spray)
Step 4:
Painted 4 coats of an area for labeling the can

Voila!  This is also a great canister for boredom cards, candy for potty training and healthy snacks to keep at your work desk with an inspirational quote on the chalk space.

  1. Wouldn't you know, I have never tried Ovaltine?? Does it really taste good? Maybe my kiddos should give it a try!

  2. @Carmella, it's funny, we just started drinking it about 4 years ago. I find myself using it post workout because of all it's great vitamins and minerals! :) You should try it!

  3. Love this idea!! I'm a big fan of upcycling things we would normally throw away. Great idea. I really need to buy (or make) some chalkboard paint.
