Trick or Treat Jug


  • Plastic gallon-size milk container
  • Hot, soapy water
    trick or treat jug
  • Safety scissors
  • Orange paint (poster or watercolor)
  • Black construction paper or black paint
  • White glue


  • Soak the empty milk container in hot soapy water for approximately 20 minutes. This will not only help clean the inside, but it will also help remove any ink or labels on the outside and make the plastic softer and easier to cut.
  • Cut off the top two inches of the container and discard.
  • Paint the container thoroughly with the orange paint. Set it aside to dry.
  • While the paint is drying, cut out a jack-o'-lantern's nose, eyes, and mouth from your construction paper. When the paint on the jug is dry, glue the jack-o'-lantern's features to the jug and allow the glue to dry overnight. If you have black paint, you may paint the features on your jug instead.


  • You can use fluorescent orange paint, which can be found at art supply and paint stores, to make your jack-o'-lantern more reflective while your child is trick-or-treating.
