We joke around about how it takes a kid to open a child-proof cap on a bottle of pills, but kids are really talented little beings – especially the ones born into technology! They amaze me!
Today is KID INVENTOR’S DAY!!! We old folks tip our collective hats to the younger and more technologically savvy in the world. What inventions have kids come up with? Well, I wondered about that too. Here are just a few examples of what kids have invented.
- Snow Mobile
- Toy Truck
- Crayon Holders
- Magnetic Locker Wallpaper
Children are the most valuable asset we have. Their imaginations run wild with creative thinking and if they are properly encouraged, the sky is the limit to what they can accomplish. I suppose it’s because they are not yet saddled down with the responsibilities that adults have. They are still free to explore and learn, compose and extract and experiment to their heart’s content.
A child can ask questions that a wise man cannot answer. – Author Unknown
There are many more inventions that are not listed here. Every day the patent office receives applications for new inventions from young people.
It’s one thing to invent and have all the pieces available – but it’s quite another to invent when you have to scrape and scrounge around for parts you need! That is wonderful and shows great ingenuity to be sure!
Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man. – Rabindranath Tagore
If you have a child or grandchild, today is the day to encourage him / her to be inventive and creative. Ask if there is something in particular they would like to improve or change. If it seems like something unimportant to you, don’t let on. Just be there to support the dream. The final result may surprise you.
Inventors come up with solutions to life’s little inconveniences. Back when I was in school we decorated our lockers with a lot of scotch tape. Today there is magnetic wallpaper just for lockers! Man, why didn’t I think of that? Wink! 😉
