Uses for Nesquik Containers

jemy57March 17, 2008

Hi all!

I love these forums! Great information and lots of creativity! My request is for unique/creative uses for the Nesquik containers. I have been saving them knowing that I can recycle them in other creative ways. This is where I hope that you can suggest ideas. They are oval in shape, yellow plastic, with lids.

Cut a slot in the lid. They make nice banks. You could papier mache the outside to make a piggy bank. Or glue on fake jewels if you're saving for something big.

OH for toys! Crayons, army guys, legos, markers, marbles, etc...

Or use them to carry cookies, pretzels, or other snacks while hiking, picnic-ing, or going to sports events whatever.

Put together a first aid kit to keep in the car or for camping, hiking, picnic-ing or going to sports events. BG

You could leave it as is, in your kitchen cupboard, but hide your small valuables in it when you go away.

Put yarn or crochet thread inside, poke a mall hole in the top for the thread to come through. This keeps it from getting all tangled up as you knit/crochet.

If you save enough of them - they would make pretty lanterns on the patio in summer.

visit the garden junk forum, there's a lady there who turns plastic containers into bird houses, planters, lights, everything!

Here is a link that might be useful: don't throw that away
