Thanks you guys! These are all great ideas.

Jeane, I'm a bit confused about the beads and chenille stems idea with the plastic containers.  Do you mean wrap them around the containers somehow to decorate them?

Sorry! You can get bigger holed beads, like tri and snowflake beads, and thread them on to the chenille to make bracelets or something along those lines. Smiley Might be a little two stiff to fit into the little container, but would work hidden  in the cardboard tube.

I would love to get together with others in the area and have a day of crafting while emptying that "extra" (is there such a thing?) supplies! If interested PM me!!

My first thought when I saw those little containers was they would make great tooth containers to put under their pillows for the tooth fairy (isn't 2nd grade when they start losing those teeth?).

The cardboard tubes reminded me of napkin rings.

Both could be covered with fabric or paper that the kids have drawn/painted on.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

My first thought was a backpack mini first aid kit but someone else suggested it.  Could be used for a id container/emergency contacts as part of a personal safety lesson, the info could be hidden from view.  Use the paint pens to right ICE on the container (in case of emergency).

if you study castles you can make towers for Dioramas. they also make red wood trees when stacked, and wigwams but I don't know if you live east coast where the Native Americans used wigwams. and I think we did that in third grade not second. also mother's day is coming up and bangle bracelets are good gifts.

oh and the small plastic canisters would make good salt and pepper shakers and you could use clear contact paper from the dollar store and paper to cover them. decorate the paper then use the clear contact to both protect and stick them on.

The cannisters can be filled with rice or such like, taped closed, then put inside small toys, small cushies etc as noisemakers.

i second the tooth conister idea. when i was in school and still loosing teeth a hundred years ago we got to take our freshly lost teeth home in old plastic film canisters, just like your little black containers. maybe you could decorate some and keep them in your desk drawer or something for when your kiddos loose a tooth. then they could have a very pretty and exciting container to keep their tooth safe for the long journey home!

Make little individual time capsules in the canisters? Get everyone to write a bit of info and include some pictures or drawings and maybe some small items and then bury them in a bigger box, then revisit them in a year or two. We had such arguments at girl guides about what would and wouldn't be included in our capsule that the only reasonable way to sort it was to each have our own mini box.

I once went on a charity trip to Gambia where we visited schools and did crafts with them. We collected loads of film cannisters, and we filled them with a simple bubble liquid like washing up liquid and water. We blew bubbles from them. The children decorated the sides with stickers and spent the day blowing bubbles. That's the best idea I can come up with!
