It amazes me how many food and drink products I use on a daily basis that have lids on them. I have found ways to use them in craft projects, but they also make a great little dish for those little gluing or mod-podge moments. I save all my caps and lids now in a ziploc bag and use them on a regular basis.

I am a caring clown and go to senior's care facilities. You mentioned making tap shoes from plastic lids. I have Mason jar lids and want to make them for the seniors. I also have elastics. We will put them onto their own shoes and then have fun toe tapping to old songs like twinkle twinkle and old McDonald. Anyway you get the gist I hope.

I would love to see a photo of this as I can't quite envisage it. It would be very useful for me in my job as an activity co-ordinator for dementia patients.
