Don't ask why, but I have about 5,000 plastic sandwich boxes - the triangular ones you buy your sandwiches in at shops.

 

Now - what do you make of that? I have a few ideas but what might you make of them?

 

If you're in the north east you're welcome to some if you want.

Idea stolen from the world wide web;

 

A great way to illustrate what a triangle is for preschool children is to use triangle-shaped sandwiches as the medium for their art project. Teachers (or parents) can make a child's favorite sandwich and then cut it into triangles using a knife. Then, preschool kids can take pictures of their triangle sandwiches using a digital camera or children's camera. Pictures of the sandwich triangles can be cut up with age-appropriate, blunt scissors and arranged on a large poster.

 

The teacher can specify how to arrange the triangles. For example, preschoolers can arrange triangle sandwich pictures on a poster board or bulletin board to look like a beautiful buffet display. Or they can arrange triangles to make larger triangles, rectangles or squares. Preschoolers can also use triangles to form butterflies, flowers or fish in a sea.

what about a fundraing idea...how many things can you get in the box? or give everyone a box and give a prize to the one who comes up with the most inventive use or funniest or daft or brightly coloured or......... :( you get the idea xD then offer the rest to your lea for them to pass on so that others can do the same...you could start a trend :o

We inherited something similar from a parent - they were very useful for sending our in-school baking efforts home, and also at cake sales for packing biscuits into rather than plastic bags. They kept us going for a year or so - 5000 would probably see me into retirement though!

Would they make windmill sails?

Windmill Sails?!! Brill. Wonder if they'd catch the wind like a kite? Love the fund raising ideas Might pass some on to the local playgroup to let them have a go (I'm childminder). Offer still stands for anyone who wants some.

I'd leave some out for the kids to come up with ideas of what to do with them, I bet they'll come up with more creative uses than any of us could think of!
