I had collected the jug and cap a while back because I knew that we would be doing this ONE day. I found a hammer and a screw (I figured the screw would make a bigger hole) and I showed the kids how to hold the hammer and how to safely hit the screw into the lid. They both had a lot of fun attempting. Mommy's fingers got hit a bit, but they were having a great time. Goodbye manicure that I just got done three days ago . . .
And this is wha the lid looked like when we finished . . .
The holes were still small, so it was taking a long time for the water to come out. I showed my daughter how to squeeze the carton so that the water would come out faster. This worked for a while, but her hands got sore after a while.
So I decided to finish off the water that was in the jug - and this is what happened with my powerful muscles . . . Verdict: Spend the money and get a watering can. Not worth it AT ALL! However, if you are looking for something to keep the kids busy one afternoon - do it! Just don't expect it to last.
