When I was a kid I would save popsicle sticks and make stuff out of them. I am sure the kids of today would think that is just ridiculous...well unless it was a Wii game. But what about chopsticks? The best use for them I have seen is when the Friends gang fashion a large poking device to poke ugly naked guy and make sure he is alive. In that case they were using new never used chopsticks. What about the one's that have already been used?
How about making a fruit basket?
