We save milk jugs for our many animal tasks and to add liquid fertilizer to the garden beds, but more recently, I came upon some cooler projects to use them for.
Sometimes when I am watching TV, or just chatting, I cut them up into squares, to someday make this cool curtain, inspired by homemade mamas. You can read the directions here.
The jugs also make great storage, especially for group projects, as seen on craftzine.They could also hold a child's collections, to house his finds yet be easily seen and accessible. What child doesn't collect things?
They could be used for games too... like sorting objects and matching colors and many more.
I would just make sure the cut edges are not sharp for little skin. Perhaps a couple times going over it with rough sandpaper would dull it enough.
