More - What To Do With Old CDs

More ideas just keep coming in:
Use the CD's for trail lights at night. Fill a number ten can about a third
full of water. Put a candle through the hole in the CD. Place the CD/candle
on the surface of the water inside the can. Light candle. When done blow
out candle and turn upside down.
Use the CD's for night trail markers. Paint outside edge about an inch all
the way around with a color to denote the trail. Place each CD on ground
within view of the next. Scouts with a flashlight aimed downward see the
bright reflection from the shiney side (unpainted area).
Use the CD's for a toss in the bucket game. Mark a line. Place a wash
bucket or waste basket at a reasonable distance. Have Scouts try to fling
the CD into the bucket for points.
Use the CD's for signalling (same way you used to use mirrors)
Use the CD's for a software graveyard on halloween - bury half way in ground
at regular intervals. (Someone had way too much time on their hands for this
Use them for tent markers. Each Scout's first name is on a CD. Run twine
through hole and hang from tent pole. Is said to help Scout remember which
tent is home for a week at camp.
Use them for cowboy hat decorations. Cut off bottom half of medium paper
cup. Invert and tape to center of CD. Paint light brown with dark brown
hat band from ribbon glued on. Instant wild west momento.
