Make a Watering Can from an old Milk Jug (…VIDEO included)

My kids love to help me take care of our plants and flowers, both inside and outside of the house. However, they all want to help at the same time. And here comes the problem — only ONE WATERING CAN!!

So, instead of buying the kids their own watering can, I saved up a few milk jugs and turned them into their own mini watering cans. However, I say mini…..but a gallon of water goes a long way — and really is the perfect size for watering, no matter how big/small you are!

And with the perfect amount of tiny holes in the lid…….it creates a nice soft drizzle of rain! But don’t forget the air hole to keep that steady flow of water!

And I know this isn’t rocket science and doesn’t necessarily need an entire video to show you how this is done, but I’ve been having a lot of fun filming little videos lately.  (So if you really hate these, tell me……and if you love them, tell me that too!)  And a little added music can make anyone happy, right?! :)

So start saving up those jugs now because having one of these watering cans handy for watering indoor plants is perfect but is also convenient for giving your flowers and blooms outside a nice drink.  (Click on the VIDEO below!)

Enjoy your weekend!
