Do you have a hard time getting your child into bed for the night? Then you need a "sleepy time pal". All you do is buy any stuffed animal (that has no metal zippers, eyes, or parts). With a seam ripper, open up it's belly and insert a muslin bag that you've filled with lavender flowers (or any potpourri).
Sew the animal's belly back up with matching thread with the bag towards the "skin" and near the seam. Then right before you're child goes to bed, just microwave this specially stuffed animal for only 30 seconds and the scent of the lavender flowers will waft up through it's fur. This is sure to delight any child and make bedtime more fun!
Note: Lavender flowers can usually be bought where they sell bulk teas and spices.

If they are small stuffed animals you can hang them from the ceiling of your childs room .Maybe dangle themunder a ceiling fan.
a friend of mine has a dead tree in the front yard,
and her hubby hasn't got "around"to cut it down.
so she put some stuffed toys on each branch and
they look pretty neat lol

You could salvage them for "parts". Use the stuffing, eyes, fabric to make other crafts. You could make one big stuffed animal with a quilt like look to them.
