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.
The Medicinal Vending Machine!!! by Cleo, age ten
I’m not about to remove Cleo’s three exclamation points, because she earned every single one with this amazing invention.
Not only will it read your germs and dispense tailor-made chewable medicine (Um, hello, can I just get one of these to keep in each of my kids’ rooms?), but the fact that she’s leaving an open spot “until we develop a cure for cancer” hit me right in the feels.
The Ultra Water Bottle with Selfie Stick by Margot, age eight
I like a water bottle that multitasks as much as I do.
I just hope it doesn’t fit in the drink holders on treadmills. We don’t need to encourage people to take more gym selfies.
Lifelike AI Robot Cat for People with Allergies by Thalia, age eleven
As long as I don’t have to clean an AI robot litter box, I’m in.
Even though I’m more than a tiny bit jealous that Thalia is way better at drawing cats than most adults I know.
Homework Helper By Luci, age nine
I’m not going to lie, I really hope Luci comes out with a “Helping With Homework Helper” for parents.
Sixth grade math is hard, you guys.
Reading Mind Teleporter by Paul, age seven
No more packing suitcases! Plus, since you never even have to say where you’re going out loud, no one can find you and bug you while you’re on vacation.
Well, until you start Instagramming it.
