Bottle Bank via Martha Stewart: transform a used plastic bottle into a cute piggy bank. Could use same idea to made little containers for kids to store their collections too (use bottle with wider opening and don't make slot)
Use these compact cuties to put on a puppet show in a shoe box theater. Paint jumbo craft sticks as shown. Add button, bead, felt, and googly eye features with tacky glue. Use a black marker to add nostrils or other details. PUPPET SHOW!
