Kitchen Scoop

About: I am an Industrial Designer, who obviously loves to create. Now that I am a mom, most of my creations are inspired by my daughers. I believe that if more parents were making stuff with their kids, the world ...

In this instructable I'm going to show you how to make a scoop out of a milk or juice container.

It's very helpful to have something like this in the kitchen. I use it all the time when making smoothies, I already know how many scoops I need to make the perfect smoothie.

I know you could buy these at the store, but it's very rewarding to make something out of stuff that you'll throw to the trash or recycle bin.

Step 1: ​Gather Your Materials

A small milk or juice jug (1 litre) thoroughly washed

Dry erase marker


Step 2: Draw

At the bottom of the handle, draw an inverted triangle, with round corners, using the dry erase marker.

Take your time to make it symmetrical, if you make a mistake the marker will erase easily.

Step 3: Cut

Once you are happy with the shape, cut the jug using the scissors. This plastic is very easy to cut.

Step 4: Erase

Finally erase the marker and wash it again. Wait until it's completely dry to use it.

Now I´ll save all the milk jugs to make many more until I have one scoop for each jar.
