Eventually every home begins to accumulate a stack of CDs that they have no use for anymore. It could be that free trial for America Online mailed to you 5 years ago, a game you no longer play, a bunch of emails you don’t need anymore…the list goes on. But what should you do with all those discs collecting dust around your house?
Recycle them into crafts of course!
Check out Crafting Parties’ directory of crafts you and kids can make at home to recycle or reuse this flashy discs of information!

And last, but not least, Family Corner’s Disco Ball from old CDs!
So you know what CDs make me think of? Pancakes! Why can’t you have a breakfast for dinner type party that involves a pancake feed? There are so many variations and so much creativity you can take that a pancake is the perfect medium for any crafty food chef.
Have the basic pancakes made up, but provide a large and expansive toppings bar! Chocolate syrup, maple syrup, fruit, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, whipped cream, jar and honey butter are some great ideas just to start with!
Have a theme for all the pancakes. A fruit theme would mean that some are made with the fruit in them like blueberry and bannana and then you could also just theme that around the toppings like jams and thawed frozen fruit.
Have a sweet tooth fest! Chocolate, mint, coconut and candies could be either incorporated into the batter or made into a toppings bar.
You get the idea! Now get flap jacking!
