I hate just recycling the yogurt containers in the recycle bins, so here are a few things I use them for:

Use them as form molds for homemade candles and soap too. :-)
I collect and use yogurt cups for favors by covering them with batting and fabric. Your hot glue gun is your best friend on this project.

No matter how many drink "to go" cups I buy, there never seem to be enough. In an emergency, I found myself cobbling one up from a recycled fast food cup - large - and making a lid by putting on a plastic yogurt lid which I cut to fit with little flaps cut into the rim on one side and then secured with electrical tape. I then cut a triangle in the lid and inserted a straw I had saved. Looks monstrous - but will do to save spills while on the go.
TOO MUCH WORK FOR ME!!! I DO SAVE THE FOAM SOFT DRINK CUPS FROM THE FAST FOOD PLACES. I KEEP THE LIDS TOO. I WASH THEM OUT AND RE-USE THEM SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE THROWING THEM AWAY. JUDY
