Aunt Jemima or a watering Can

With having such a large family I have to buy huge containers of Aunt Jemima syrup. What can you do with them? I turn them into watering cans for the kids. They are very durable and hold a lot of water for the flowers outside the kids have planted.
You are going to need a jug with a lid and yes, a milk jug works great as well. A hammer & a nail will be needed as well.
Flip your lid over so you are pounding the nail through on the inside. It is less likely to crack from this side. Make sure you pound the lid on a hard surface that you don’t mind leaving holes in. I used a scrap piece of 2 by 4. 5 to 10 holes depending on the cap size will be needed.
Once the holes are pounded, fill the jug with water, put your cap on tight and happy watering.
