About the Pringles cans:  We used to use them as bowling pins when I was a kid.

As for a doorstop, I have a container filled with sand that I decorated with that really thin foam you can find in the kid's section of the craft store.  My doorstop is based on a cat with ears and a face of the foam stuff that I attached with craft glue and some hot glue.  Not my finest work but I had the flu when I did it.  Sorry I don't have a photo but believe me it isn't anything special.  However, kids may enjoy decorating it themselves.

when i was in college i volunteered at one of the local historical sites working with high school kids. we made candles to sell for fundraising using empty pringles cans. we melted the wax and poured it into the clean, empty cans. once the wax was completely cool we simply peeled off the cardboard pringles can. you can only use each can once, but i don't think they'd hold up to repeated pourings anyway.

of course, i just realized that you probably mean the new plastic ones...

This is just off the top of my head Tongue but how 'bout making the doorstop by putting sand into the container (actually put a bag of sand in the container in the event that it gets punctured you don't want sand to leak out!).  Wrap brown felt around the container and continuing with the felt, create a dachsund with the cremora container as the body.  You could really do any kind of animal, but i'm sure kids and adults (!) would love it!

After going back and reading this thread, i foolish realize my idea is practically the same as NynaeveAS's  Undecided
