My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook
Our price: $14.95
Inventing is a characteristic of being human, yet surprisingly enough, in today’s read and regurgitate academic climate, it is not something that is actively pursued. My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook: 50 Awesome Drawing Activities for Young Inventors can change that. With its pages and pages of creative prompts, My Crazy Inventions will inspire brainstorming, imagining, and ultimately, drawing.
Each spread contains numerous fun-filled illustrations of real and imaginary inventions and scenarios plus lots of room for your child’s own inventive drawings. “Invent a brand-new candy, a writing tool your friends would like to use or something that would help you sleep better at night.” My Crazy Inventions has illustrations of actual inventions, and is bursting with fun facts of inventions that have succeeded (M&M’s) and failed (a car wash for humans). My Crazy Inventions is beautifully crafted, with thick pages ready for multiple erasers as your child fine-tunes his design. Also included is an application for a patent and a patent certificate, suitable for framing.
Note: Some pages may not be suitable for all families, most notably a bikini-clad sunbathing page.

We planned a STEM engineering unit with My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook, along with various building kits and the "Rosie Revere" literature. This sketchbook is really fun! It stirs the creative juices and gets the kids imagining and dreaming big ideas. Each page is filled with prompts and illustrations for your child to elaborate on. We think this one is a good choice!
Great book to get those creative juices flowing. We start school with this every morning.
Love this book, my son enjoys it and has made some very cool sketches.
My son has been completing this book as summer work. He has a very creative mind and loves it. He is always so proud of the different inventions he comes up with. So much fun!
