Milk Jug Watering Cans
To turn an old milk jug into a watering can, all you need to do it wash it out & poke a few holes into the lid - and voila! My kids also chose to personalize theirs with permanent markers.
(We used the 2 liter sized jugs as I thought anything bigger would be too heavy for the kids to use.)
I actually like these home-made watering cans better than the store bought ones when it comes to my kids helping me with the garden... Since the only holes are the ones you make in the lid, the water comes out great at first and then slows right down as it drains out of the jug (until it fills with air again). This is perfect for 3 year olds who don't understand the concept of less is more!
And now that the garden has been fully watered, the kids are having a blast playing with them in the paddling pool!
