I am looking for cute, crafty ways to reuse bear shaped honey containers. Any suggestions?

Gosh, they would make great containers for homemade sauces, dips, or not so homemade sauces like katsup or mustard! If you did not want to use them food related, they would make great glue holders, acrylic paint for a large art project or to hold glitter! They would be a cute and secure way to have and transport glass beads if you still have the lids and caps! Wow - the sky's the limit! Enjoy your many more options!

I agree with using it for mayo and mustard, but why not go beyond that and use it for shampoo and conditioner.

Fill them with glitter, paint, finger paints.. for kids to use.

Also put cake decorations in or Sundae toppings and let the kids help in the kitchen.

Great for kids shampoos or body wash. How about sand art containers (either to squeeze from or to fill with colored sand)? Might make a Cute Vacation memory jar for young kids.

If you have a large amount of these -- like 20 or 30, you could donate them to a local school for someone to use in a craft project in an elementary classroom. If these are glass jars, they could be filled with stones or something decorative for display. If they are plastic, as I think they are based on the feedback you have been getting, they could be used for something else.

Since they are bears, perhaps they could be used somehow in a 3 bears or winnie the pooh theme craft in a primary grade or pre-school.

I was stunned recently at the price of plastic bottles with pointed nozzles, to decorate when serving food. Like for squiggles of syrup or chocolate sauce to dress up a simple cake, thinning out jelly and decorating a plate when you servce desserts, pureeing veggies and making designs on food. Never thought to use my empty bear containers. But, your question made me realize how to recycle the bottles.
