With the dog days of Summer up on us now, a cold dish of ice cream is one of the first things some people think of to cool off with. If you have children, you might already purchase the plastic 1 gallon pail containers of ice cream. If not, you might want to after reading this tip. After the ice cream is gone and the pail and lid and clean, make a cute Halloween treat pail!
Cut a hole in the the lid large enough for large hands as well as small hands to fit into comfortably. Then, paint both the lid as well as the outside of the bucket in Halloween colors of orange and black to resemble a Jack O Lantern. Either your little ones can carry it to collect Halloween goodies in or you could have your Halloween goodies in it on a table near your door for your Trick or Treaters to choose their Halloween snack or goodies from! With a few more months of hot weather, now there's more reason for buying more of the buckets of ice cream, make enough for all your kids or grandkids or sell them at your yardsales!

When my son was in kindergarden we made easter baskets/ buckets out of them.

If you are planning to use the plastic buckets ice cream comes in use Krylon Fusion Spray Paint for plastic so the paint will not chip or peel off. The paint can be purchased at Lowe's, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart. It really sticks to plastic and does not bubble up.
