Pringles Can Cookie Container Craft

Recycled Pringles can with printable Santa design

Home made cookies are the best and our Pringles Can Cookie Container is the perfect way to give them as a gift. Remember to think about the size of your cookies so they fit into your container nicely. This is a great project for kids to do with other members of the family. Make sure their contributions are commensurate with their age and ability.


Leaving cookies and milk for Santa—and perhaps a few carrots for his reindeer—took off as an American holiday tradition in the 1930s, during the Great Depression. In that time of great economic hardship, many parents tried to teach their children that it was important to give to others and to show gratitude for the gifts they were lucky enough to receive on Christmas.
