Got Kids? Make a Watering CanPosted: August 6, 2020
A recycled watering can is a fun project to make. Actually, the fun begins when your little helper uses it. Recycle a laundry detergent bottle with a spout. Rinse it well.
The bottles come in different sizes, so the smaller ones are better for the younger kids. Drill several small holes in the lid. The holes can be made with a hammer and nail if you don’t have a drill.
Now you have a watering can made of recycled materials. The best part about this can is that it limits how much water comes out at a time and prevents over watering by little helpers.
I found it useful for the adult gardener as a second watering can that can be used to hold fertilizer for a specific plant. I was gifted a tropical fruit tree, which I feed with special fertilizer and it is nice to have dedicated can to keep the mix in.
