6 Ways to Get Creative With Your Empty Pints

October 5, 2020

Ever finished a pint of Phish Food and thought to yourself, “Hey, maybe this pint container could be good for something crafty and creative?” No? Just us?

Around here, we’ve become experts at using our pint containers — properly cleaned, of course — in fun and unique ways. After all, they’re funky, quirky, and remind us of the delightfully euphoric flavor that was once inside.

Here are a few of our favorite ways to get creative with pint containers:


Cat Toys

Fluffy may not be able to enjoy your ice cream with you, but she sure can take advantage of the pint container! This cat toy is easy to craft and will keep your kitty companion busy for hours while you dive into your next flavor.


Telephone Game

Hello, chunks? Swirls, are you there? Call your nearest and dearest using a homemade pint telephone — and tell them to pass the pint of Netflix & Chilll'd, stat.


Jazz Up Your Pint

Give your pints a euphoric makeover! Print out these customizable templates, color them in with your wildest design ideas, then cut them out and affix them to your pints. Who says coloring is only for kids?


Bowling With Pints

All the fun of bowling, without the smelly shoes. Set up 10 clean pint containers and bowl them down with your favorite ball. The best part? Have a scoop of your favorite flavor every time you get a strike!


Pint Planter

Pint containers are the perfect size and shape for showing off your green thumb in style. For an added twist, plant your mint seedling in a Mint Chocolate Cookie container — who knows, you might grow a chocolate sandwich cookie plant.


Early Birdfeeder

This nifty bird feeder design requires only a single pint and a piece of sturdy string. Not bad for a feeder that will bring as much euphoria to the birds as its original contents did to you.
