  • There are some craft things you can do with your kids. Take 2 cd's and glue them together, shinny part out. Then glue sparkles or rhinestones in various place on the sides, and glue on googley eyes.... Cut out fish shapes like tail fins, side fins, lips, etc. Hang with string by a window or light. Tada sun catcher fish! LOL

  • They are pretty and reflect the light - you can get some fishing line and a piece of driftwood and make a mobile with your kids. Might not make the cover of Better Homes and Gardens but it will kill an afternoon and reuse some of your trash ;)

  • Turn them into music coasters! take the inside area and line it was felt and the back side as well. leave the picture of the artist on the front alone. you can even sell them that way. Thats what I do!

  • Those are some nice ideas ladies. Some of them are burned cd's, so there is no picture to worry about. I was thinking of maybe drawing pumpkin faces on them and then hanging them up. May take a while, but I am sure I can do it. Or maybe bats or really round chosts. lol

  • Or you could hang them from your Christmas tree as shiny ornaments.
