what do you do with empty formula cans?

I was wondering if anyone has a creative way of using powder formula cans.

I take the label off and use it to store my infant cereals. I keep the scoop in there too, and it makes it easy to measure consistent serving sizes, and it's much less messy than pouring it out of the box.

I don't have formula cans, but I use empty coffee cans to store the crayons that seem to appear all over the house!

I used to do that with my first DD. I also put all the extra teething cookies from different packages in there so I didn't have 5 boxes of them in my cabinet.

I make pencil holders as gifts from them. I also use them to hold bottle caps were are saving for our local church. They make great change jars also.

I use mine to hold crafting supplies like beads and scissors.

oh and instruments for kiddos. They make excellent drums or with beans in them they make great shakers - just make sure to glue the lid on so the beans stay inside. If you glue paper on the outside then kids can decorate their instrument. I did this for a toddler music class and they loved it.
