So this can be lumped in the workout activities category for VFFs, but doing burpees in fivefingers (or barefooted on grass!) is a great exercise, and in addition to working your entire body, the ability for your feet to stretch and bend when you transition from the squat to the push-up and back makes for a great calf workout.  After doing 100 of these puppies, I guarantee calf soreness the next day.

Don't even get me started on burpees. Great strengthening exercise but does a number on one's calves. If you're into that sort of thing, I'd suggest mountain climbers as well.
I prefer it without a bench, though.

Oh yeah mountain climbers are solid.  I'm suddenly thinking of the craig ballantyne crazy 8 cardio circuit (a favorite of mine: http://www.justinowings.com/b/workout.php/2008/12/04/turbulence-training-s-crazy-8-bodyweight-08

The cat leap on the end is great - I'd really like to learn some basic parkour moves (ones that are simpler than that leap!).

Related to this, I've always liked this video -

It's not particularly useful, just cool.

Ha yeah - I've seen that one, as well!  I need to install a little youtube vids on VFFs on the blog.  (it's on the to do list!)

I wish there were more VFF youtube videos out there - too bad there aren't!

Yeah I've been thinking about that, too -- I need to make a couple!  Maybe if I can get that no-hands trick down fast enough I can post that!
