My sister and I have been saving the 35 mm film containers for something she saw in a magazine. Our school has a "santa shop" in early December and we thought we would offer them for the kids to buy for Christmas gifts.
Anyhow, we are poking 2 holes in the sides tieing a string through the holes and making a necklace out of them. Then we will decorate them with beads, glitter glue, stuff like that. (the kids could do this part). They then keep
them as a keepsake necklace (to keep small things in) or the magazine suggested a waterproof coin holder. Whatever - they looked neat. good luck!

Another great project is to glue small green pom pons where they just peek out of the top of the container. Glue the top on one side to allow the pom pon to show. Put up drop of glue on top and attach a hanger made from yarn or string. Let the kids glue eyes to the front of the pom pon and viola! you have Oscar the grouch

In our home we have TONS of those 35 MM. plastic holders. We go through over 3 rolls a week with the kids.
I use the containers to hold the tokens from ChuckE Cheese.
For a birthday favor I thought of taking the container and making a mouse out of it... get it Chuck E Cheese is a mouse! hehehe
You take felt or foam peices and cut out ears, and the face, a tail out of yard. Hot Glue it all on... the kids get a kick out of it.
Works great if you have a kids birthday party at ChuckE cheese.
