Oh! There's a couple we've been meaning to try: 1 - Fill the legs of thick women's tights with dry beans or rice. Add googly eyes and felt peices to make them look like snakes or weiner dogs (striped tights for the snakes, lol). This makes a draft block to lay on windowsills or in front of doors during the winter. 2. Make "snowglobe" Christmas ornaments using cardboard (for the bottom), pillow stuffing (glued to the cardboard for snow), and a clear plastic drinking cup for the globe. glue tiny mirrors on the bottom for ponds, add some miniature trees or animals available at hobby shops, attach a loop of string to the top to hang, or just set on a table to decorate.
