What a good idea for the kids to make use of all the plastic milk jugs we accumulate! This milk jug igloo is another kind of fort the little ones will enjoy. :)
Plastic containers are among the most persistent – and prevalent – debris polluting our oceans and clogging landfills. In 2014, researchers estimated that some 5 trillion plastic items were afloat in our oceans. Many of them were milk jugs.
This recycling idea is commonly done as a students’ classroom activity/project which provides lots of educational benefits to the children. They can use the end product as a playhouse or a reading nook.
Milk jug igloos are very easy to build as the only tool you will need is a hot glue gun. The time to build one, however, is the most ‘difficult’ aspect since you will have to collect around 500 pieces of plastic milk jugs for a spacious igloo. But if you have access to lots of empty plastic milk jugs, then the kids can have an awesome igloo of their own in no time!
