We love galvanized buckets here at DoitDaily – here’s a cute project for the next found bucket!
- Galvanized funnel or bucket with a hole cut in the bottom
- drill and different size bits
- Pendant light kit
- Edison bulb
Great project for using all those bent caps that don’t work for other projects out there! Yeah!
- 12-inch wooden dowel
- Canning lid
- 15 bottle caps
- Strong bond glue, such as E6000
Get a roll of craft paper and lay it out in the space to make a pattern – go tight along the walls, use tape to hold the pieces together. You may need to cut the paper to fit around obstacles.
Carefully roll up your pattern. Take your vinyl, pattern and a broom to a business that has a nice flat driveway. (We called a family member who gave us permission to use their church’s front walkway – it worked great!)
Sweep away any debris and lay out your vinyl and pattern, cut along the pattern with a sharp utility knife. Roll back up and it should give you a nice fit.
We had great luck with this method – have you ever tried this? Let us know in the comments.
Fun for playtime!
- Large plastic container with lid
- dry beans (whatever is cheapest) – enough to fill bottom of container and then some (or dry feed corn)
- plastic beach toys; scoop, funnel, rake, cup, etc.
- kids old enough to know not to eat the beans
Put beans into container, add toys. Have kids play with the beans inside of the container.
Kids will spend hours in front of their ‘bean box’, scooping and pouring.
Clean up: Snap on lid and store bean box in a cool dry area. Sweep up run-away beans.
You’ll have plenty of darts for an all out Nerf-style war when you can make your own!
Lucky Ducks is a game for little kids. Easy and inexpensive to set up and always a favorite at festivals.
- Rubber duckies, several- all of the same style
- A clear container or small baby pool
- Water, with some blue food dye adds a nice touch
- Permanent marker
- Prizes, small toys, stickers, candy, etc.
Set up: Determine how many prize categories you’ll have and divide them up. Three is what I use. Mark the bottoms of the ducks with a 1, 2 or 3. Make a cute sign with the price, if you are charging to play. Fill the container or pool half-way up with water and add the ducks.
To play: Kids pay. They select a duck, pull it out and check to see which prize they will get. Easy!
