The refrigerator in any house with young kids typically holds about three times more artwork than food, so there’s no doubt that kids are crazy creative.

That creativity extends right into their problem-solving skills, too. For example, one time my son had a problem with strongly disliking his new haircut, so he creatively solved the problem by vigorously petting the cat until he’d amassed a large ball of fur, which he then creatively glued to his head using Elmer’s which resulted in a very creative (but thankfully short-lived) cat-toupee solution.

Okay, maybe that’s a bad example, but kids certainly do have a unique perspective on the world, and they’re blissfully unfettered by silly adult concerns like “production costs” and “reality.” Check out these kids who came up with some pretty incredible inventions on Cool Mom Picks to create imaginative solutions to problems you probably didn’t even realize you had.
