I remember we used to use them in elementary school when practicing adding, subtracting and multiplication, sort of like really cheap abacus'. Its not very crafy, and I dont know what they teach in second grade these days...

how about if you trace or draw a picture of a fish or a dragon,and glue the tabs on to look like scales.or attach together in lines to make a door or window curtain.

OK - so I have been playing around with these things, and this is what I came up with.  After looking at lipzillas suggestion on melting them, I placed a layer of them in a bowl and bunged it in the oven.  Turned up the exhaust fan full bore and waited. I did this a couple of times, and this is what I ended up with.  The plastic doesn't seem to melt but softens considerably enough that when taken from the oven I pressed it all together (weating oven gloves of course, cause they are still very hot). No obnoxious smells either that I noticed.  This was only a couple of layers and is quite fragile, but with a hotter oven and more layers it should be fairly sturdy.  Will keep trying and will let you all know how it goes.
