My Crazy Inventions Sketchbook: 50 Awesome Drawing Activities for Young Inventors
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.
From the Publisher:
Do you have some crazy inventions up your sleeve? This book is jam-packed with Andrew Rae’s amazing drawings showing all sorts of real inventions that seem too weird to work. How about a dog umbrella? A submarine that looks like a plane… or even a shark. A swimming machine where you don’t get wet? A car wash for people? Someone has even made a device to charge your phone using a hamster!
There is plenty of inspiration to get kids’ minds going, and plenty of room to add their own crazy inventions to the mix. They can design the best beach buggy ever, create a brand new sweet to share with the world, or even draw a transformer dinosaur! Includes a patent certificate for their very own crazy invention.

Daughter loves drawing her inventions.
My son loves to doodle and experiment, so when I saw this item it was a no brainer! He really does enjoy working in this book about once a week, and it provides a nice change of pace from his regular curriculum materials.
My 9 year old son absolutely loves this book! He says it is the best book I have ever gotten for him. The prompts are very creative and engaging. The whole layout of this book is great and really promotes creativity and out of the box thinking.
Love this book! Great way to get my 6th grade son grounded and ready for the start of the school day.
I love a book that can bring creative ideas out of my kids! This book is really well made and gives the perfect push my son needs to get his ideas on paper.
