The regular size ones make great change holders, especially for quarters. They're good to fill for kid's gifts, or anyone needing change for laundromats, buses, pop-machines, etc. Decorate for a special gift with contact paper, collage, glue on seed beads, etc.
Fill 1/3 with dry rice or beans, tape two or more to a chopstick and the kids have maracas to shake.
Great for organizing beads, pins, sewing needles, buttons, etc.
They make great bobbers for fishing if you can put a bead of hot glue around the cap to make them not fill with water. Hot glue a loop from a metal twist tie so you can quickly attach to a fishing line. I use craft wire wrapped around the cap with loop, then when I hot glue it, the hot glue anchors it down.
Make emergency kits:
1. First Aid: BandAids, alcohol swab, gauze pad
2. Sunburn: Snack zip loc with a squirt of lotion, one with sunscreen, one with paper towel.
3. Handiwipes: paper towels moistened with water and rubbing alcohol. Put in zip loc if pill bottles leak.
4. Sewing kit
5. Trash: plastic trash bags, or plastic grocery bags.
