    Cans make great drums for toddlers, storage of crayons for preschoolers and old fashioned phones with string for the truly imaginitive

    I saw a YouTube tutorial once where some teenage girl turned part of a soda can into a fashionable ring for her finger! :-)

    We don't buy canned food but I've seen pencil holders made out of them
