Bunki,
How about ...
*sea shells
*buttons
*wire
*tin pie plates
*plastic food trays (like from Healthy Choice entrees, great for paint
palletes)
*egg cartons (also for paints; just close the lid to keep moist for a
couple of days)
*keys
*spools from thread
*pipe cleaners
*berry baskets
*styro meat trays (again, great for palletes; also cut them up for small
styro block prints)
*pill bottles
*film canisters (great for saving mixed colors of paints)
*nails, screws (scraffito, making impressions in clay, etc)
*coffee cans w/lids
* General Foods coffee cans (the rectangular ones) w/lids
*aluminum cans w/o labels
*plastic frosting cans w/lids
*cigar boxes
*scraps of fabric
*shoe boxes
*extra tiles from re-modeling jobs (break into great mosaic pieces)
*mirrors
*still life items (cool jars, fake flowers, etc)
*fabric scraps
*wallpaper books
*pasta, beans, seeds
*old shirts (men's button type - for smocks)

I could go on and on... I just tell parents if there is a remote
possibility that I could do something with it, then send it. If I can't
use it, I'll either find someone who can or I will toss it. I have
gotten some really cool stuff. If parents know they can send it to you,
rather than throw it away, they almost always do! I guess it just
depends on how much storage space you have... or maybe I am just a pack
rat!! One of the hazards of the job, I guess :?)
