My eighth grade students (boys especially!) like to use the barrel of the

pen as a paper-wad shooter! Maybe not what you had in mind, but it is a use for them!

Cut the outside casing in pieces and when you get an assortment of colours they can be threaded on string or cotton or fishing line, to make necklaces, bracelets, and anklets! kids can have heaps of fun Just a thought.

How about removing the inner workings, and use them to make crafty flower stems for a bouquet of home made flowers. Can be painted varying shades of green or leave them the original colors.

I use them in my arts and crafts when I'm tracing an image from tracing paper onto the final piece. It's better than a pencil when you want to reuse the tracing over and over as you don't cover over the original lines. But you do still need to use a pencil on the back or nothing will transfer!

I was trying to be clever about hiding some travel cash once & rolled the bill tightly & slipped it down in the empty barrel of the pen - instead of a money belt! I save some of the parts as replacement parts for other pens. Same with some lids like from toothpaste in case it gets lost for instance. You could make a picture frame from some of the cooler looking pens.
