Making Stuff: Water Jug Baseball

by This is Carrie on May 21, 2009

Ever since my sister brought a water jug bat to our family camp out years and years ago, I have been wanting to make my own. It’s a seriously fun game for all ages.

That looks like so much fun. And a surefire way to hit the ball!

How do you make it? I’m a teacher and this looks like a cool idea!

I cornered a water delivery guy in our neighborhood and he happily gave me one of his old water jugs even though I offered to pay for it. I took it to Home Depot and found a PVC pipe that was the perfect size to fit snugly in the hole. It was so snug, I didn’t need to glue or tape the pipe into the jug. I capped the end of the pvc pipe with the appropriate cap and it was done!

Hoping I’ll get a response even though this was posted a long time ago. Did the kids enjoy this more than a few times or did it end up in the garage? It looks like so much fun!!
