Most of us drink milk and simply go and throw them into the recycle bin or the trash can. But a blogger buddy over at Coupons and Freebies in TX came up with some really fun, unique and interesting ways to bring our boys and girls to the yard with milk jugs.
These fun and simple ideas to help you reuse your milk jugs can all be done with our without the kids. It’s just more likely they will water the plants if they make their own watering can. Before you do any of these make sure you clean the milk jug out very good and let it dry out.
– Watering cans (kid friendly)
To make a watering can all you need to do is get a hammer, a nail and a piece of wood. You will place the lid upside down cap down and simple hammer with the nail 4-8 holes into the lid. Also you can use a knife like I did if you want a slower drip. Afterwards you place water in the milk jug and seal the top on and you are done and can go use.
