Uppercase/ lower case wheels

I have great hopes for my new little box of brass fasteners. It seems like they could enable a lot of fun creativity. My first project with them was a set of simple wheels for M to turn and practice correctly aligning her capital and lower case letters. It works well and has become a semi regular feature during our school time.

Does anybody else have interesting ideas for things to do with the fasteners?

What a fun learning tool!

Have you tried using the fasteners to make little puppets? You can use them to fasten moveable arms/legs/elbows/knees (however complex you choose to make it).

Notes from the Den, that is a fabulous idea! Have you done it? If so, I'd love to see a picture (and even post it here if you didn't mind)
