Okay....maybe just two. But two pretty cool uses for an empty milk carton!
Today we made a bird box out of an empty milk carton, the idea for which we got from Lydia during our Walkabout at Schiff Nature Preserve yesterday. We filled it with grass and we're hopeful that some birds will come to inhabit it, or at least check it out. We'll see...though Bess felt that ten minutes was plenty of time for some neighbors to move in, I am a bit more realistic. It is supposed to be rainy this week, so maybe some friends will take refuge in our newly-constructed home.
We also made a wallet out of a milk carton, the idea for which we got from Family Fun magazine. It is not a craft for the little ones, but I would say that grade school children could probably do it. I certainly had fun with it.
