Misfit Toys are all the rage, and you’ve got the hottest toy out there this year. Package a loved one in toy packaging complete with a bow and ribbons and place them under the tree or on a store shelf. Your “toy box” or label should indicate what makes that person inside unique and wonderful.

Successfully dunk a holiday gingerbread person cookie into a standard-sized glass of milk from a height of at least 2 stories. The cookie must have a parachute for safety reasons.
Love makes the world go round. Build a machine that uses love to spin a globe.
I keep losing my stuff. Invent a Misha-proof AirPod-finding solution that is NOT a cord, because that defeats the entire point of AirPods – and one that works when they’re not charged. Show it in use.
“Bee-drinking poles are all the rage, but your neighborhood bees deserve to really unwind. Create a bee bar – a bee “saloon on a pole” using recycled bottle caps. Install it somewhere public. – Item Written By Misha’s Mom
NOTE: For the safety of the bees, our resident apiarists ask that you please use sanitized lids with no chemicals or beverage residue on them, and plain water (not sugar water).”
Hula hooping is hard, and you’re just not ready to go it alone yet. Create a hula-hoop with training wheels for beginners and show it in use.
They say stepping on a LEGO is the greatest pain one can experience. We Gishers laugh in the face of pain. Make shoes entirely from LEGOs – no fluffy socks or insoles allowed- and demonstrate them in use. Post it to social media and tag the LEGO accounts and @GISH. – Deidra
We have recently seen the emergence of mega-farms, huge efforts that implement farming on an industrial scale. Let’s go the other way! Show us your version of a micro-garden. The tinier and more ornate, the better.
Behind the Scenes
Create a Little Free Library (https://littlefreelibrary.org/) or Little Free Pantry (http://www.littlefreepantry.org/) in your community. One catch: include a bookmark in every book explaining why you included it & something spoiler-free you love about that book, and each shelf-stable food item you stock in the pantry must include a note with a recipe and words of encouragement. – Inspired by April B.
