  5. Make a LEGO mold
    • Using a large lego mold, create plaster bricks that can be used to make a foundation. An alternate will be a sugar, salt, and fat mold with seeds to feed birds.
  6. Make a 3D printed pinecone bird feeder
    • Using 3D printed pine cones, lotus cages, and magnolia seeds to create peanut butter and seed feeders.
  7. Make a chicken swing
    • Make a simple swing from rope or rubber twine and a stick to allow chickens to swing.
  8. Make a chicken tractor

  13. Make a biodynamic keychain
    • Make a dynamic tensor shape with dowel rods, play dough, and rubber bands.
  14. Make a fingerprint art charm
    • Make a clean finger print that can be projected to twice its size and retraced into a piece of art.
