Since I have so many...now I thought I would look up some sites that list things to do with old phone books. Anyone have any other ideas.

I wouldn't use them for rodent cages. Some inks are toxic if swallowed.

And lining litter pans with paper under the litter just concentrates the ammonia. Better to use clumping litter so that you can scoop out the urine before it starts breaking down and forming ammonia. If you don't like the clumping clays (the clay is strip-mined), there are clumping litters made from pine shavings (sawmill waste), ground corn cobs, and wheat chaff.

We just put our phone books in with the rest of the recyclable paper.

My Grandma use to take the pages and fold them like an accordian and then make a flower out of them, she also would take a hole bunch and cut them into different size circles and then cut strips into each one and curl the strips with a pencil so they would look like a flower.
My other grandma I barely remember how she did this but somehow make a triangle out of the pages and put them all to gether to look like an evergreen at Christmas time.

Other than that, the only crafty things I use them for sometimes is when I am shipping a package and need packing material, I also use them as mulch, I have cleaned the windows with them but don't care for that one to well.

Otherwise I just recycle them.

My grandma used to tape them together and cover with fabric to make booster seats for all of us when we were little.
