We’re all really enjoying spending time out in the garden. Although we’ve been in our house for 2 years now progress on our garden has been slow. Our first priority was the children’s play house, giving them an area for their sand pit and water table, and planting some vegetables in our upcycled pallet planter.
Over the weekend we had some fun making simple watering cans for the children to use.
Recycled milk bottle watering cans for kids
This was really simple but fun. I found a couple of empty milk bottles from the recycling box. I used my Dremel and a 2mm drill bit to drill several holes in the milk bottle tops. Then filled the milk bottles with water and screwed the tops back on.
This is a really easy watering can and the children love using them. The handles make them easy to hold and the holes in the lids restrict the water flow so there are no worries about flooding the plants with too much water.
Of course you can’t always make sure the watering cans are used to water plants!
Sun catcher stakes
We also coloured in some fun little gnome sun catcher stakes from Baker Ross. These were a fun little craft activity and the children loved using special glass pens to colour them in. We added them to indoor and outdoor plants and they add a splash of colour and fun to our gardening activities.
I love this time of year – so many opportunities to craft!
