   I guess the guys at work are having more coffee than usual, because they have thrown out two powdered creamer containers (you know, plastic containers with spouts on the lids).  So far I've decided they would be good to hold my cocoa, since I drink a lot cocoa in the fall and winter.  I was thinking it would much cuter than those individual packages.  I also thought that they would be cute as tupperware, especially to hold leftover gravies or soups.  Maybe to hold powderd milk (I heard it's yummy for your skin if you use it in the bath).  Any other ideas? I'm sure they'll keep me in them for at least a few months.

I made a set of bowling pins  for my 2 y/o nephew by cleaning them and putting about a half-cup of  marbles in each one.  The marbles don't come out if the lid pops open, and they make a satisfying racket when they fall over, reminiscent of a real bowling alley.  The ones I used were from International Delight, so they had a bowling pin shape, too.

Mine don't have the shape, but it's still a good idea, and I do have a two year old niece.  If I get enough I'll defenitely try that.  What did you use as the ball?

Along the same lines as you storing cocoa in them, I use them for keeping powdered sugar, brown sugar, coconut, & chocolate chips for baking and things like that which often come in a bag when I buy them. Especially if I'm not going to use the whole bag when I open it.

i have some of those waiting to be turned into snowmen fior the holidays.  glue on a stocking hat to the lid only (so you can twist it off if you want to fill it with goodies like candies or homemade cookies)  glue or paint on eyes, nose, mouth and buttons and tie on a scarf around the "neck".  very easy to work with if you use felt, flannel or fleece-no sewing if you use the toe of a sock for the hat and stuff with some filling.
