diy toy: nostalgic milk container catch.
20 June 2013
So, as summer has found it's way to the Pacific Northwest, its only natural that my mind wanders to games to play on a grassy lawn. As you can tell by the picture above, the heat of summer isn't quite a steady routine yet. But, like all good Seattle-ites, my kids happily threw their rain boots on to play with a new toy.
I'm betting I'm not the only one who loved playing container catch as a kid. But, I'm also betting I'm not the only one who completely forgot that you can transform two milk containers into an easy game-- within minutes!
1. Gather a gallon milk or juice container for each player.
2. Working carefully (the edges can get sharp as you cut), cut the bottoms off of each container.
3. Grab a lightweight plastic ball, throw and use the containers to catch!
My kids played all afternoon and into the evening, only stopping for a dinner break. And, as we were having a backyard bbq at the time, the adults milling about joined in on the fun too. How great would these be for a big family picnic game?
I joined the party with this project at Skip to My Lou and Today's Creative Blog!
