    My daughter has a tin can robot.  You use a soda can to build a robot, it's pretty cool...

    I haven't ever disassembled a can to make something else but I've reused them for storage. I'm gonna look over some of those projects. The stars are adorable!

    I mostly just recycle them, but the lantern idea is cute!

    Those stars look really cool. I need to look into those because some of my family members (hubby and my dad) are very serious about which brand they will drink (pepsi and coke respectively). My dad would just about die if I made him a bunch of ornaments for his tree next year.
