Create a Wishing Well

wishing well made from five gallon bucket
One day recently, Big Sister came up to me and said,
“Mom, I reeeeeeeally want to make a Wishing Well.”
So, a Wishing Well we made.
supplies needed to create a wishing well
Our supplies were easy to find around the house and in the garage:
5 gallon bucket
crafting paper
clear tape
plastic pot
plastic grocery bag (our “water”)
two pieces of wood and a paint stirrer
We taped the crafting paper around the bucket and taped it into place.
craft paper wrapped and taped around five gallon bucket
Big Sister drew “bricks” on the paper.
draw bricks on craft paper
Tape the wood pieces to the inside of the bucket and tape the paint stirrer across the top.
We cut the bottom third off of a brown paper bag and slid it over the paint stirrer.
Tie the rope to the bucket.
And haul in some water.

  1. This is really cute, not because of the end produc (although thats great), but because you got to say 'yes' to your childs request, I love those moments too. Thanks for sharing at the Outdoor Play Party
