The weather outside is miserable and you have a bunch of kids over. How to keep them occupied with mostly household items that you have on hand? Make toys for them, of course.

The original story…
When my daughter Ellen was four I started teasing her that I was saving all of my boogers in a big booger ball.
I don’t know why I told her that except that it was fun to watch her make that “grossed-out” face that kids make when they smell something bad or see a squished cat on the road. She always begged to see it so finally I told her that she couldn’t see it now but I would give it to her for her eighteenth birthday. Well, guess what – she’s turning eighteen and I’ve got to come through with a booger ball!
Here’s the basic steps to successful Booger Ball manufacturing

Go to any home improvement or hardware store. What do they give you when you buy some paint? Hey, there's advertising on these worthless wooden sticks, so they'll probably give a bunch of them to you for nothing. Here is what you can do with your newfound stash of gold.

Inspired by the beautiful Babele lamp by Manifattura Italian Design but turned off by the cost, craftsman Mike Warren built the Stacked lamp, a lamp made from wood and a few parts from a hardware store with rotatable, removable, rearrangeable Jenga-esque wood pieces. He thoroughly documented the design and construction process in an Instructable for the lamp as well as a video. Warren even provides the templates he uses and suggests free Tinkercad software for people who would like to design lamp pieces on their own.

NASCAR drivers and law enforcers use custom wide-angle rearview mirrors to avoid head-swiveling. You can buy a wide-angle mirror that attaches over an existing rearview for $60, but you can make one for about $12 and a few shop scraps.

For no practical purpose at all, I wanted to see if I could make a screwdriver into a car key. What fun it would be to impersonate the look of a stolen car with a screwdriver jammed into the ignition! And maybe I could empty my glove box all over the seat so it looks like I was scrounging for spare change and prescription drugs too!
Read on to make your own.

It's a fascinating idea, making squishy electrical circuits with home-made conducting and insulating play-doh... but you probably shouldn't pack your creations in your carry-on luggage.
Your most productive day of the week?
Nothing! Player's off!
