    You could make pretty stepping stones to put about, or fill a bird feeder with them and then add water. Here's how we made a patio with discarded stuff. https://littlesproutslearning.co/make-homemade-stepping-stone-patio/

    I make stepping stones with the flat stones. There are several ways to do this you can buy premade concrete stones and use mastic to glue them on the stepping stones and then use a grout. You can make your own using cardboard boxes lined with plastic and pour your own concrete. The flat case boxes work out quite well. You will let the concrete get a little bit tacky feeling then press them into the concrete. Another thing you can do is get some E1000 glue clear and glue them onto planters you already have.
