Why not use your square gears to make a spirograph type drawing set?
A video of my version, set of three gears:

For square gears and other mechanical goodies, a great online site is the Kinematic Models for Design Digital Library at Cornell University

Don't know if they're hard to make, but here a nice explanation of non-circular gears:

Fascinating stuff, I had no idea non-circular gears existed. I thought this was just a joke object.
Fantastic! I wanted to make some square gears a bit back, but got hung up on the math.
