Green Thumbed Man

I was about to make the holes of the watering can.
I have been making a watering can and a shovel and plant markers out of milk bottles. 

To make the watering can you need to get a milk bottle and cut the lid just a little bit down. We cut the lid off so we can make a hole so water can get in. Then we drew the holes and then I got a skewer and Mummy heated it up to do the holes.

I can water the plants but don't get the water too high because otherwise you waste it as it drips out the holes.

I used the book: "Green Thumbs, A kid's Activity Guide to Indoor and Outdoor Gardening". I like the book because you can make watering cans, shovels and plant markers that tell you what plants are and you can make plant cages for them too, all out of milk bottles. It even shows you how to make a bird house out of a milk bottle or pumpkin. And out of milk bottles you can make a bird feeder. And you can make a scarecrow out of milk bottles! The book is about recycling.
The plant markers are so you know which plant it is. We put the 
garlic plant marker in our vegie patch where we planted garlic.

Mummy took the pictures by the iPod.
