Kid Inventors Day

Date When Held : This holiday is always January 17


Our kids are our future. We've heard this expression used often and in many, many ways.  It's well known that kids have creative, untethered minds. As a result, the youth of the world come up with a lot of good ideas, concepts and inventions. All you've need to do is encourage them, and then listen and see what happens. It's only fitting that Kid Inventors Day exists to recognize kids for their past, present and future achievements and inventions. This day also is intended to encourage kids to dream up new inventions and to pursue their ideas, by bringing us new products, services, foods and much more.  


Never underestimate the value of the brilliant, young creative minds in world. Untethered by why "you can't do this", or "you can't you do that", these inquisitive and ingenious young minds conceive and create countless ideas for products, processes, art,  foods, and a whole lot more things that make our lives better, more fun, easier and more enjoyable. Bring out the best in these young minds, by encouraging them to come up with ideas and then explore how to make them a real 

There are many great examples of kid inventors. According to Lee Ward, the creator of this day, children and teens invent over 500,000 gadgets and games every year! Perhaps the best example is Benjamin Franklin, who at the age of 12 invented swimming fins. As we all know, Benjamin Franklin grew up to be one of the greatest inventors in American history. With their "can do" attitude, youthful inventors and thinkers have brought countless inventions into existence. Among them are earmuffs, popsicles and water skis. Every parent knows full well the impact of kid's creative thinking. We've all witnessed first hand the seemingly wild and crazy concoctions they make in the kitchen. More than a few of these culinary creations turn into huge hits.   

Today's Quote: "Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream things that never were and ask why not." - - Robert F. Kennedy.

Bonus Quote (We thought this second quote quite appropriate for today):  "Invention my dear friends is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple." - - Willie Wonka

History and Origin of Kid Inventors Day:

This inspirational holiday was created n 2005  by Lee Ward, of Santa Barbara, CA. Lee is an author, and focuses on encouraging youthful inventors. Her award winning books include: 101 Ways to Bug Your Parents, 101 Ways to Bug Your Teacher, and 101 Ways to Bug Your Friends and Enemies.

Ward selected January 17 to celebrate this day, as it is the birthday of Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was once a kid inventor himself, and is one of the best known thinkers and inventors in American history.
