Sometimes the right tool for the job is a pointy stick. You need to reset a certain electronic device with that little pinhole button? A pointy stick will do it. Hunting wooly mammoth with your tribe on the frozen tundra? Pointy stick again (only bigger!). Bamboo skewers can be really fun to draw with. Just dip one in some ink and have at it! In the above pointy stick and ink drawing is my daughter, drawing on a transparency for an overhead projector- another obsolete tech that is fun to play with.
