“The Bicycle Fence”

Little Tommy is not so little any more. He has outgrown his shoes, clothes and bicycle all in one summer! L.T. (as he is now called) longs for a brand new bike, but when his father builds him one from recycled junkyard prts, L.T. is embarrassed to ride it to school. Can he come up with a creative idea that not only gives him a good-as-new bike, but also provides a new fence for his yard… and helps save the planet in the process?

  “Selling Eggs” 

L.T. is excited about the chickens his family has ordered. He can’t wait to start selling eggs for pocket money! But when twelve fuzzy colorful and extremely noisy chicks arrive, it’s clear that any pocket money will have to wait. Can L.T. use his creative recycling ideas to house and care for the chicks, and when the time comes, transport their eggs to town?

"The Flowerbed" 

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and L.T. is anxious to find a suitable gift. When he spots an old canopy bed in the local junkyard, L.T. thinks it’s just the thing to give his mother the “flower bed” she has always wanted.  Little does he know how much work it will be to get it home and planted in time… let alone who will end up sleeping in it?
