Upcycled Dog Treat Container for a Canine Valentine

Valentine’s Day is next week (already!) and I’ve got the cards, a little something to surprise everyone in the family already.  I’m feeling like I’m prepared.  But then the kids reminded me that MOM! We always get Tobey a treat for Valentine’s Day! MOOOOOOOOMMMMMM!

And so when Milk-Bone Dog Snacks invited me to be part of their 10 Days of Treats Campaign, I knew what we’d do for our Tobey. We’d make him a special treat container just for his Milk-Bone Biscuits as a fun Valentine’s Day Gift.  Actually, I mentioned it to my daughter, and she immediately had a great idea.  Mom, she said, let’s look in the recycling and see what we can use, and then we can use some Duck Tape! (Really, any excuse to use Duck Tape flies in this house.  It’s so much fun to play around with!)

I give you the work of my 8 year old and her Upcycled Dog Treat Container!

So, to make your upcycled treat container, you will want to get the following things:

1. A container to hold your treats (clean and dry, of course). We grabbed a rice container because my kids are all under 9 years and they can easily hold this container).

2. Duck Tape in your favorite color/pattern/style

3. A Duck-Taper.  This happened to be my 8 1/2 year old, who was the creative brains behind this project.

4. Dog treats (We used Milk-Bone)
