Baby Food Containers

I always feel guilty for tossing out baby food containers when I am done with them.  So, a while back, I saved a few and came up with a good use for them.  Just a little bit of scrapbook paper, some glue, and a marker, and now I have organized office supplies!
Kierste at Brown Paper Packages did something similar but with different items (and her labels look a lot cuter).
Since baby #3 is on the way, I decided to look around a bit for some other baby food container uses.  Check out this matchbox tutorial from Craftaholics Anonymous.  What a good idea to put sandpaper on top to strike the matches on.
Over at Juise, she shows us how to make some beautiful homemade playdough and stores it in plastic baby food containers.  So clever!
I might have to buy glass jars this time around so I can make this adorable magnetic spice rack from The Little Apartment.  I love that it’s not taking up any counter space.
And why did I never think to do this with the kid’s snacks?  Found this idea on Make and Takes.

Thank you for the great ideas! Curiosity blocks sound perfect for church!

I've used mine to make rattles and curiosity blocks for my daughter. She loves the rattle one which is just filled with some defective beads. You could also fill them with dyed rice, lentils, pasta, etc... Just hot glue or super glue the top shut and done.

Curiosity blocks: I have filled them with other things that don't make sounds but that are interesting to look at. I have one filled with colored pompoms, ones with bits of scrap felt in different colors, and one with shiny confetti and sequins. Once again, glue the top shut and you're good to go. I also put small toys that are not safe for her to currently handle into them and glued the top down on them. She likes matchbox cars, but the edges are too sharp for her. With it safely in the tub, she can look at it all she wants and even put the block in her mouth without injury. She also can use them as blocks and stack them.
