"There's nothing for me to do!"

Recently we've noticed that lots of kids are coming in, looking to spend time in the shop and not particularly interested in fixing up a bike for themselves. Here's a brainstormed list of things that anyone can do:
  1. Make a bike stool
  2. Organize parts bins
  3. Clean parts in parts bins
  4. Make/write thank you notes for volunteers or participants
  5. Disassemble a bike for parts
  6. Help with someone else's project
  7. Fix a bike to donate to the shop
  8. Fix a bike for the shop to sell
  9. Take pictures of people/projects in the shop
  10. Make some bike art
  11. Design a new logo for the shop/a special event
  12. Make a poster to promote biking/the shop
  13. Find catalog codes for items on the needs list
  14. Organize the bike rooms/fold bikes
  15. Make homemade bike tools
  16. Design a t-shirt for a special event
  17. Decorate a helmet
  18. Interview volunteers/participants for feedback
And that's just a few of them!
