    Do any of you ladies have any ideas for a craft that could be made from laundry detergent containers? I have saved quite a few and was wondering about it. I searched on msn but didn't come up with anything. I'm thinking..maybe a bird house of some sort. Although, I'm not sure if these will paint easily. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    A bird feeder sounds like a neat idea - it may not be easy to paint but you might be able to glue construction paper to it to make it a little more decorative for the birds.

    You could also make a terrainium with them (sorry if I didn't spell that one right). We have a science book that gives an explanation of what to do to make one of these (you find some 'earth' and put it into the container and then re-create the natural environment that bugs live in - supposed to collect a bug or two to go with it - great project for boys who love bugs :D )

    Some practical uses for the empty laundry containers could be a place for lego (so you don't step on it - that really hurts the bare feet...lol), clothes pins, bath toys, etc.

    Just some ideas off the top of my head...

    hello
    you could make plats pots fill them with soil and plant them.

    I also should find art and craft books at your local library that art filled with great ideas

    best of luck
