I dont buy that stuff. I like Kinder Buenos...

But a friend gave me a load. Who am I to turn down free chocolate?

The toys are uninspiring, and I suspect most of the play metrit lies in the app.

But the yellow containers are full of potential. its amazing as to what can be made to go in them.

Are they watertight and what would you use them for?

I don't think they're watertight enough for full submerssion for dry goods but would make a good float so bobnewboys fishing kit gets my vote

Egg boxes if you want to carry quails eggs in your backpack, with some smoked salmon and avocado you've got a lovely breakfast.

Or alternatively, you can use them to put a muslin cloth in to keep your wash kit getting wet if you haven't had time to dry your facecloth.

Ha! I thought I was the only one who took these things seriously. I use them for lots. For eg., hiking, have one with a bit of vaseline in it in case my feet start tearing up or blistering. And/or, another with a bit of sudocrem in it for any chafing, sweat rashes, burns etc. that need a bit of adhesion and antisepsis. Anythinng with high viscosity will stay put in them

I hadnt thought about it at all...but fate brings in opportunities.

And part of Bushcraft is about taking advantage of resources that may come my way.

Reuse recycle! I have thought about it but never used them yet. They are good fun to squeeze until the lid pops off though :)

I bet you could fit the melted outer chocolate into one of them.

Personally I'd probably but some hooks or catapult ammo in, maybe a spare bandset? Not all together like. It would probably double up as a fishing float well.

I bet you could fit a real stripped back sewing kit in one
