The best thing to do with the grounds is make another pot of coffee like you do with an old tea bag. Can use it with half new grounds if you want a stronger cup of coffee otherwise add flavorings. Dry them out in an oven other wise they will get moldy.

thinking about it I have in the past add a little bit of coffee to the grounds that was in the coffee filter and then add just a little bit of water to make a small pot of coffee or like a cup or two.
but always used it that day not keep it.

also if you are doing a craft and need beard or hair you can glue to grounds to the picture for that.

I save my egg shells on the side of the kitchen sink, they dry out and then when I have some enough to grind in the food processor. That way they are like fine grit and can be sprinkled on the soil.

I wish we were coffee drinkers too. But it doesn't agree with me.

Childrens Playdough

Want a great non-toxic play dough? Try this recipe.
2cups used coffee grinds dried.
1- 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup salt
Add enough warm water to make the dough pliable
Kids can create & sculpt dough.

Can also dye easter eggs from grounds in hot water.

Thanks for the info about coffee grounds. Since our weather is turning cool I have started drinking coffee again and think about my plants every time I throw the grounds out. I will start using them on my plants. Any plants I cant use them on? Jackie
