Craft coffee creamer containers?

Hello. They might make interesting bowling pins for children if weighted with sand or some other material.
Maybe used for flower pots?
Use them to store chopped up veggies for camping

Hi! My granddaughter and I made fairy houses with solar lights with similar containers. The inexpensive solar light went in the top. We glued glass "gems" on the outside, and otherwise decorated them. It was inexpensive and so cute out in the yard. You can also paint them with craft paint. Ours lasted for years and through a lot of snow and hot weather. We also made candy gift containers out of some. Good luck and have fun!

I use my containers for starting herbs in the kitchen. Poke a few holes in the bottom, add a little pea gravel, then potting soul. Plant the seeds.
Right now I have garlic started from 1 clove that was starting to get iffy. To get the garlic growing, put the root end in a shallow dish, add a little water and watch the roots start to form in a few days, then just plant it when they are about 1" long, keep the soil moist. It will grow really quickly.
WOW!!!!! THANKS EVERYONE!!!! These ideas are awesome!!! I love the planter ideas, great for spring/summer learning opportunity. Thank you all for letting me know that I didn't save those unwieldy bottles for nothing!!! ❤

Hi Lisa, hope this gives you some ideas!
Hi Lisa, I have been cutting my coffeemate containers about half way down and using the bottom to put plant cuttings in. I have shared those cuttings with friends and family for several years. I then recycle the remaining portions.
