Milk Jug Recycle

My 5 year old daughter is always BEGGING to do a craft with me. I have a love/hate relationship with these requests. I LOVE spending time with her but it seems that I am always going a million directions and the last thing I seem to want to do is stop the million things that need doing and spend quality time with her!!!! I know, I know problem right?!? I have been putting her off for days, promising “we will craft tomorrow.” Yesterday when she asked again, I couldn’t bring myself to say no, so I stopped what I was doing and we got to crafting!
I have been saving milk jugs (cleaned and rinsed out ones of course) for a rainy day. So I googled milk jug kids crafts and came across this cute idea on Family Fun. You will love this site, LOTS of great kids ideas for just about anything.

Here is a picture of our finished craft. My daughter loves it, both my girls really like containers to put stuff in. They put things in, then take them out, then put them back in, then carry them around……hey whatever entertains them works for me!

All you need is a milk jug, tissue paper in different colors, a glue stick, mod podge and a foam brush.

Cut off the top section of the milk jug, and then cut the tissue into circles.

Then let your little one use the glue stick to glue the circles onto the jug.

Take the mod podge and cover the jug coating all the circles. I did let my daughter do this part and she actually did just fine despite a little OCD anxiety on my part! Just look at that smile! This was a good day.

After the mod podge dries your child has a little scooper for small toys, or little nick nacks!
