Build a robot with the motors for driving, use the IR distance sensor to keep at a certain distance to the wall and do wall following, use the servos to build a gripper, use the color sensor to detect the object (use a colored plastic disposable cup for instance, or a Coca-cola can if you're too young to enjoy a beer). Also, you can use the termistor to check out the temperature of the cola and only get the chilled one :D

So yeah, that's about it, use everything you have and build a robot!

How about a line follower? Then you can later on enhance it with maze solving, or color based turnouts. Dunno if you have enough LDR's for a true maze solver, most designs requires 5 or more sensors.

But start out simple, make it run down the line.
