If you still have the cans, string them together into a vaguely humanoid shape and then work them like a puppet from an upstairs window when you get trick or treaters coming round next week.

On one occasion we Selloptaped just over 200 beer cans to the ceiling. They were dropping off in the night like slow radioactive decay keeping my friend awake. The cleaners refused to do the place in the morning and reported us... L

You should make them into trays by following this Instructable, Recycle cans into nice trays, and then sell them.
You never know you might make a lil money.

If you came up with a variant, you could enter them into the Etsy contest.

put them in a bottle machine and get money for them (you can find bottle machines in most grocieries stores) the most you will get is about $4 but if you can get ten cents for each one you would make $5.50

Hm.. You could crush them, and make a suit of armor. Add a pump and stack them with the tops cut off for a fountain sculpture Get more and built a small castle

I think that fountain thing is a great idea! I might try it.

I was going to make Weissensteinburg's suggestion. How about cutting them up to make little propellors to carry tiny sensors into the heart of a tornado?
