These decoupaged milk jugs are great for transporting toys, dumping them on the ground, and scooping them up again when playtime is done. Make a waterproof version by cutting drainage holes in the bottom and decorating the jug with permanent markers; it's perfect for skimming toys from the bathtub.


  • Craft knife (parents only) or scissors
  • Gallon jug
  • Colored tissue paper
  • 2 1/2-inch-wide can
  • Pencil
  • Glue stick
  • Paintbrush
  • Mod Podge


  1. Cut the gallon jug as shown, leaving the handle section intact.
  2. To create multiple tissue-paper circles quickly, stack and fold the paper into several layers. Use the can to trace a circle onto the paper, then cut out the stack of circles.
  3. Adhere the tissue-paper circles to the jug with a glue stick.
  4. Brush Mod Podge on top of the circles to seal them.
