    Talking Ideas for games with old CDs

    we have about a hundred discs we don't want..

    anyone think of a game we can invent to get rid of them in an entertaining way?

    Disc shooting wouldn't work as they are not heavy enough, and we have nothing to shoot them with.

    So all idea's welcome!

    set them up in a tower, and drop bricks onto them, or burn them using a magnifying glass. May take a while but thoroughly enjoying!

    Remember those old foam disc throwers? I wonder how far they'd launch a CD, with appropriate modifications of course.

    make sure that they they have no personal data on them.

    using CD labels print various highly confidental central Government style labels and then leave them on Buses and trains. Then sit back and watch the local news reports

    Make big shiney glasses out of them, you could dress your whole school up as Elton John.

    I know it is boring but we use ours in displays and awards and also as bird scarers and pretty mobiles.

    A couple of years back the DT department took hundreds off my hands for use as little hovercraft - they glued old bottle tops ontop them and then stretched a balloon over that so that the air rushed out through the centre hole.
