Mummy Chia Upcycling Craft!

Upcycling can be so fun, it’s spooky! 👻  We’re loving these easy-to-make monstrous Mummy Chia party favors made from empty Chia Squeeze pouches! Check out our how-to guide below and get creative!


All you need is:
– Empty Chia Squeeze pouches
– Cheesecloth
– Sharpie or black marker
– Googly eyes
– Glue (we recommend Tessa Bunny’s Organic Non-Toxic School Glue)

Step 1) After enjoying your Chia Squeeze pouches, safely cut off the tops (right under the Mamma Chia logo works best) using scissors and clean the interior with soap and water.

Step 2) Coat the exterior of the pouch with glue and begin wrapping the cheesecloth around the pouch in good-ol mummy making fashion (there’s no wrong way). Once you get enough of a mummy look, cut and glue the end to the pouch to secure the wrap.

Step 3) Glue on the googly eyes and use the black marker or sharpie to give your mummy an expressive mouth. Happy? Concerned? Shocked? It’s up to you!

Steph 4) And that’s a wrap! Just load up with treats of your choice and share the fun!
