Creativity is indeed alive and well in our home. While I would like to take the credit for some of those things (like my nine-year-old son sewing his own camo pants and hunting vest) some I would prefer to forget (finding a bag of warts in a kitchen drawer).
But sometimes, that creativity needs a little boost and this week it is all about My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook.
I was given this product by Timberdoodle for review purposes. I have received no compensation for this post.
What is My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook?
Much like the Doodle Aventures book I reviewed last week, My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook is full of idea starters for kids who love to think and draw but do better with prompts. My kids love these kind of books and they are always well-used in our house.
This book has 50 drawing activities for kids to complete. My kids are huge fans of the Klutz Book of Brilliantly Ridiculous Inventions and My Crazy Inventions puts them in the driver’s seat as chief inventor.
Apollo (10) had fun creating the Ultimate Sleeper for Dogs which is a coat that put on them that includes a mattress and pillow on the side. He also created the Automatic Belly Rubber and the Weiner Motivator. You simply attach a hot dog to the end of a stick that is attached to your dog to get them moving.
Who is My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook for?
Tucker, ever the comedian, created the literal mindblower.
I think this book is well suited for any child age 8 and above who enjoys drawing and creating. Personally, I like to always have a stash of these type of activity books on-hand for rainy days and, “mom, I’m bored” days.
