left over grout! I need an idea and fast!

It has been ages since I have been in here.
Life, lazy, bad computer, pick an excuse.
At any rate, I just grouted a mirror and a bowling ball and have a TON of grout leftover!
If I can get an answer in the next 20 min or so I will jump on it.
What can I do with this grout? I used to know this, but I can't recall a thing.

My Lady - didn't get here in time, but what I do w/mine is water it down a bit and push it into a plastic face mold I got from Hobby Lobby. Also, in the cake decorating section there are flower-shaped molds - w/make cute stepping stones. I use all left over mortar and grout, and one day, I'll find a way to use these fabulous little faces.

LOL! That is just what I did Slow. Once I posted the worm hole opened in my brain and I got out the little faces mold and a duck jello mold.
thanks a ton.

I saw a photo of some little mushrooms someone had made by hand from leftover grout. Very cute. (Was it here?)
