Family living site Disney Family Fun shows us how to repurpose an empty milk jug into a lunch container by washing it out, drawing lines as shown in the photo, cutting it out, folding, and attaching a hook and loop closure. This container is perfectly sized for a sandwich and a few carrot sticks or grapes. If you don't want to use this for food it also makes a clever gift box for small items.
milk jug mask Question: This looks like such a fun project, but does this kind of activity trivialize the tradition of African masks? Or does it realistically represent the found object aesthetic where artists would incorporate "precious" or natural objects into their art forms.
What a cool idea. Sustainable Futures. Might do this with my year 8s. Plastic bottle piggy bank. I love the patterns.
