A Smarties box gives you two treats in one. The chocolate candy is a treat, of course, and the box can be transformed into an annoying, and therefore fun, whistle. Milk Duds, Mike and Ike, and Good & Plenty are other candies packaged in a similar way. Before tossing these empty candy boxes in the recycle bin, reuse them by creating a band of mini instruments.
