The process is really quite simple. Have your students bring in a clean milk jug. Use scissors to the cut the tops off of the jugs. We suggest doing this yourself or having a parent volunteer do it. Have students use permanent markers and stickers to decorate the jug. Be sure to have them write their name on the jug (or write their name for them)! Lastly, tie a ribbon to the handle and - voila - they'll have a holder for all their little party goodies!

Neat, right!? Be sure to visit Bunting, Books, and Bright Ideas for this and lots of other great ideas!
