We make neckerchief slides out of them. The two most popular are Oscar (from
Sesame Street) and First Aid Kits (for Webelos Readyman).
For Oscar, you punch two holes in the back of the can, and two holes in the
cap. Thread a black pipe cleaner through one hole in the can up through the
top, back down through the other hole, and out through the second hole in the
back. Twist the ends together to make the loop. This keeps the lid on (as in
Oscar's garbage can). Glue two green 1inch pompoms together. Glue two 'eyes'
on the top pompom. Use a regular cotton ball as a filler in the bottom of the
can, so Oscar peeks out the top.
For the First Aid kit, we paint a red cross on the outside, (use red tape).
Then tape a quarter under the lid (for an emergency phone call), and fill the
can with band-aids and whatever we can fit in there.
and a good ol' Bear, too!
