Recycle your old yogurt containers by making them into buckets
We love making crafts from recycled materials, and those yogurt containers have got to be good for something! How about the sand box? Recycle those plastic containers into something useful:
A bucket with a handle- perfect for worm hunting or dirt hauling.
Here’s what you need:
- hole punch
- a couple yogurt containers
How to make the Bucket:
Making the handle: One of the yogurt containers will be used to make a handle.
Snip down into the side of the container and then turn your scissors and and cut all the way around the container, trimming off the top edge. Now cut all the way around again, creating about a half inch wide strip of plastic.
Cut a notch in each side of this strip.
Making the Bucket:
Punch a hole in each side of the container that will become your bucket.
Roll the handle end (kind of tricky because it’s not very soft plastic, trim if you need to.)
Push the rolled end through the hole and allow it to unfurl. Repeat and you’ve got a bucket!
If you’re like us you’ve got plenty of yogurt containers to reuse for this craft, so make a couple buckets, and go play in the dirt!
