Milk Jug Bath Toy Scoop


Reduce.Reuse.Recycle.....Here is a great way to recycle and reuse that milk jug you just finished up! Simply cut the top off like this......



Then poke some holes in the bottom like this.....





And now you have a super useful toy scoop for picking up all those toys in the bathtub and keeping them from getting mildewy! Some things are just TOO easy not to do! I saw this in my most recent issue of Family Fun magazine and it works great! It makes for a fun bath toy too as my daughter likes to use it like a net to catch her toys while in the tub...and she likes when I fill it with water and let it "rain" over her. And to think I almost BOUGHT a turtle bath toy scoop at the store the other day!!!

The same technique (without the drain holes in the bottom) makes a great "throw-up" bucket. It is perfect for in the car when the kiddies don't feel well. The handle makes it easy for them to hold - the cutout provides the perfect "target" with no splashes - it can be set on the floor without leaking - it can be emptied and rinsed for another use! (It was also perfect for my husband when he was going through chemo! All of the nurses thought it was a much better design than the little pans that splash and spill everywhere!)
