Create an Invention Box

I love watching my daughters invent and create. I recently took them to a local museum where they spent hours building, creating, playing, and best of all learning. I loved watching them so engaged in the hands-on activities that were offered. Sometimes I forget how important it is to let kids dream and discover. I feel like it’s important to encourage children to invent and surround them with materials that foster creativity. I knew that I needed to bring some of these activities home and what better way to do that, than create an invention box.

1) The first step to creating an invention box is finding a box or container that will house all of your creating materials. 

I have created a cute printable label for your container. I printed it out on sticker paper so that it would stay on our container better.

2) Now it is time to fill your invention box with all kinds of creating goodies.

It's fun to make a list for your children and let them search and find materials to add to the box. 

3) This is the best step. Now it's time to sit back and watch your children design, create, play, and learn. 

Do you have an Invention Box in your house? I would love to hear about some of the items you have included.
