400 uses for deli cups . . . ??!!

Okay, back story . . . I sent a PM to Lore once upon a time explaining a stupid mistake I had made last Spring. I ordered 400 deli cups in anticipation for the upcoming hatching season. Got the cups in and organized etc. You may or may not know the drill. Anyway, eggs started hatching, started separating baby snakes etc. Was wondering why the deli cups were getting excess condensation inside a day later . . . NO HOLES!! Are you freaking kidding me?!?! I ordered 400 deli cups with NO HOLES!! Luckily I had about 200 cups left from the previous season so was able to 'survive' for the week it took to order in new cups WITH holes! So, long story short, what are some of your ideas for 400 deli cups with NO HOLES?!?! The wife used about 50 over the course of the summer to make ice chunks for the camping coolers, but what else?!?!

Just another misadventure in this thing I like to call LIFE!!

What about using them to store things like craft beads? Or you can use them to store frozen mice between meals...

I do like the ice cube one... Hmmm... if you take them outside, and there is still snow, you can use them to form small snow bricks to build a snow fort or an igloo...

Ok, you could make candles out of them by using old sheds (or if you are twisted enough small frozen pinkies) and clear candle wax or the gel candle stuff they sell.

They'd make great little forms for holding plaster of paris that you can then imprint with hands, feet, or leafs and then paint and sell them later. lol

Send them to me

I am going to be breeding Pyxie Frogs in the future. They can potentially produce 5,000 tadpoles and they ALL need to be seperated because they are cannibalistic.

Other than that... incubate small clutches of eggs, food storage, eat Mac n' Cheese out of them.
That's what I'd do anyway.

Buy a hole punch and punch holes in them?

Are they the 8oz deli cups? I use those for water dishes with all of my yearlings. They work great...but then you've got the lids....but I've got that solved too. Take all the lids and draw numbers 1-10 and Jack, Queen, King and make your own card deck.

Water bowls, send them to stangs to pucn holes in them...etc.!

I bet you could make something yourself to hole them up.. Something as easy as a cheap wood ruler and then put some small nails all the way through and use that as a hammer.

I always buy deli cups with no holes in them as they are cheaper. I purchased a small soldering iron at Home Depot and put my own holes in them, and I can make the holes as small or as large as I want with no sharp edges.
