What do you do with all your glass baby food jars?

What about formula cans? I have heard wrapping them in Christmas paper and putting cookies in them around the holidays.

Just looking for creative ideas...

You can also let your older kids (if you have any) decorate the empty formula cans with construction paper and stickers, etc.  to make things like a pencil holder, etc.  Makes a good gift for grandparents as well.

Oh, and my hubby uses the old baby food jars for tools.  He separates nails, screws, bolts, etc into different jars to keep up with them so they don't just roll around in a drawer.

My hubby uses the cans for stuff in the garage, nails, etc. When I taught preschool I had a really cute craft with the jars we did for mothers day. Take the labels off, water down glue, paint glue on glass. Cut up tissue paper squares, stick on glue on jar, then paint another layer of glue over tissue paper. It dries, you put a tealight in the jar. Its beautiful:-)
