Recycled snack containers

What to do with all those 2L milk containers?

You can make this:

Click here for the tutorial from Disney.

The boys' club had a go at these last term. We pre-drew the lines for them and they did the cutting out. We skipped the part where you make little holes with a thumbtack (thumbtacks and 6-year olds - I don't think so). Then they personalized their container using Sharpie markers. Milk container plastic will cut very easily with a standard pair of scissors so there's no need for knives. The velcro closures are easily purchased at the supermarket or fabric store. Washable and multi-purpose. Good fun.

We go through a lot of those 2l milk containers, so I'll get the kids to try this out tomorrow :-)

Just tried it. We might use these to put biscuits in as neighbour Christmas presents this year.
