    as starter containers for garden seeds inside until they're ready to be transplanted outside! Or grow herbs in the window!

    I paint them pretty and decorate them. They make wonderful cups to put paper clips, rubber bands, etc. in to reduce mess on your desk. Don't forget to do the lid also. Helps prevent things from spilling out when you knock them over. Label each one so you know what is in them.

    I like to use them for paints for my grandchildren.  When done, I can just toss them out.

    I just go to the store and buy little flower seeds to plant in them and then i just keep taking care of them
    or you could use them as a container for left overs inside of them!!!!!!!

    I second the idea of using them as seed starters for your garden. they are also great to use as molds for concrete and other hard substances as you can easily cut them away when the material dries.

    I must be a sloth - I just put them in the recycling bin . . .

    I use them to store kids jigsaws in or any other little things that need to be kept together. You can even use them for your leftovers to freeze.

    I use them for paint/water. They can be used to make jell-o and take for lunch.

    AliciaC it is good that you think about reusing them. You can rinse the yogurt containers with luke warm water and a pinch of salt. It will take out the smell and make it brand new. Now you can do anything with this containers. Store food items, pulses, edibles in it. Grow plants. Use it to store you kids colors, your small things that tend to get misplaced. Or if it is a big one, use it as a dustbin. Well, you can do a lot with it. Just remember to clean it properly and get rid of that stickiness and odor. smile

    In addition to the suggestions as seedling planters, yogurt containers can be used as cutworm collars in the vgetable garden until plants harden off. Cut the bottom off and push the cup into the soil around the plant leaving about 2" exposed above the ground.
    They can also be used with lids to store small parts for drip irrigation like connectors and emitters.

    In the art studio, they are great for mixing acrylic paints and ceramic glazes. The lids keep mixtures from drying out.
