  • On a rainy day you can have the kids sprinkle dots of different colored food coloring on them and set them outside on a cookie sheet, bring them in to dry. Once they are dry, glue it to a piece of construction paper and have them draw a stem and leaves make pretty flowers.
    Used coffee filters work well in a compost.

  • You can use them to clean your windows. They don't streak, like paper towels do.

  • I use them as disposable snack bowls for the kids. They work great for goldfish or popcorn.
