My Translation:

Go out and find some stuff, but don't buy anything.
Make them into a functional object.
Try and use it.

B5 instructions for U5

Излезте навън и вземете (намерете) няколко предмета, като никой от тях не купувате. Направете от тях нов предмет, който да има някаква функция. Да видим дали можем да се справим с това днес, когато всичко имаме наготово.
