    The teacher next door uses them for patterning. She has all sorts of seasonal shapes laminated and cut out with velcro on the back and the can has one long strip of velcro going down the entire length of it. The kids pull the pattern pieces out of the can and start making a pattern. She has them in her math center.

    Im not sure about the big cans but they also make individual snack packs of pringles for lunches and stuff. I save the small containers and use them for paint or planting during our science lessons.

    Something else I collect are peanut butter jars! I've used them to store crayons, buttons, foam shapes, thread, googly eyes, candy (I hide chocolate from my husband and kids in my nightstand! tee-hee).

    One class used them when they were studying electrical circuits in science...they made lighthouses- painted pringle can, electrical circuit on the top and a cake paper plate on the bottom with sand...they came out surprisingly well!

    I saw a picture once of a pringle wall. It was a small section of a wall with one pringle can on top of the other. The different colors made it look very cool and was a definite splash in the room. I am not sure if it was used for anything else but it looked cool :)
