25 things for kids to invent before they're 12
Kids are incredibly creative!
This list of activities will get kids creating and testing out their ideas using easy-to-find items.
Through creative activities like these, kids practise their ability to draw upon their experiences and knowledge as they develop ideas. Kids testing out their own ideas build confidence in their creative abilities. This is important, as that confidence will help kids to seek better ways to do things as they grow up.
Use the free list to prompt imagination and ideas - with a big dose of fun!
Unsure how to do one of the activities? Start with asking questions (e.g. how big? what shape? what materials?).
