Make a milk jug template when you need to trace lots of copies.
Because it’s plastic, a milk jug template will last practically forever. And it doesn’t get soft around the edges after much use, like cardboard does.
It’s great for kids, too, because it won’t tear or break.

How to Make a Milk Jug Template.
1. Remove the label from a milk jug and wash and rinse it well. Let it dry.
2. Cut out one side of the jug that’s large enough for your template.
3. Trace or draw the template pattern onto the milk jug piece.
4. Cut the template out. I use scissors because I feel I have better control.
Cut just inside the black Sharpie line.
The milk jug template can now be used.
Trace around it on construction paper, card stock, fabric, felt, craft foam, cardboard, or plastic.
Here is an idea for how to print a sturdier template.
Adults should always supervise kids when using scissors or knives.
