You could use the larger containers for plant holders and decorate the outside. Glass containers you could attach chains and tint and put in candles for outside.

Jumbo sized coffee tins - flip over (open end down). Punch a hole on each side high up near the base. Thread rope through hole and tie. Use as Alien shoes (coffee can stilts for kids)

coffee cans - punch designs in them with metal tools or nails. Use as outdoor candle holders (weight bases with sand or rocks). Spray paint them orange for Halloween pumpkin lanterns.

baby food jars - you can make mini snowglobes with water, glitter and trinkets (just hot glue the lids on so kids don't open them), mini terrariums with moss and dried flowers (super cute)

I found a project for coffee cans on the Real Simple website that recycled coffee cans in a very interesting way outside of covering with paper or just painting them. They used them to create a Wine Rack. I do not know if you drink much wine but this would work for other bottles with similar shapes and could be made to sell at craft/yard/flea market. etc sales.

You can use coffee cans for embordry hoop for kids if you open both ends.  Also can use cans and plastic containers with sand in them with hole in bottom for ash trays around pool.
