What to do with kindling aside from light a fire? Turn it into a fence for the farm!
The animals were having all sorts of fun in there - swimming in the water trough, escaping and running away to town (you can just see a peek of the road map in the top left corner!), even Buddah is in there riding on a cow.
I loved watching the game Jarvis played with the runaway creatures - he'd make them jump over the fence and run to town and found them a paddock to hang out in, then took a tractor and a lego man to town to round them up and bring them back!
All this from a few pieces of kindling :)
