Do you have some eager kids that really want to help out in the garden? I think this milk jug watering can could be the perfect tool for your helpers! It’s even easy enough for kids to make themselves, with a little help! Even if you don’t have little helpers, I think this milk jug watering can is perfect for watering more delicate things. Like freshly planted vegetable seeds that you don’t want washed away.
Here’s how to make a milk jug watering can:
- 4L milk jug (rinsed out)
- Cutting board or scrap piece of wood
- Use the hammer and nail to punch several holes in the lid of the milk jug. (you’ll want to pound away on the cutting board or scrap piece of wood.)
- Pierce the milk jug handle with 2 – 3 air holes so the water will flow.

- Screw on the lid.
- Water away!
