Are you overwhelmed with cans of tennis balls stashed in the back of your closet, the trunk of your car, or milling around the floor of your garage?

  1. Storage - Store snacks for the kitchen, crafts for the kids, or organize nuts and bolts in the garage. 
  2. Plant container - Grow veggies, flowers or use as centerpieces for a tennis themed party!
  3. Make a pencil/marker holder - Great for the office and school. Decorate with colorful labels and funny faces.  
  4. Donate - Give old tennis balls to animal shelters for dogs, to local schools (teachers love to put them on the bottom of students' chairs) or retirement homes for walkers and canes. 
  5. Bird feeder - Try sticking wooden spoons through the can so the food spills onto the flatter end. 
You're not just recycling a can of tennis balls, you're creating a fun project for the kids and getting yourself organized with your favorite themed sport!
