Get Creative with the Wacky Inventions Activity
This activity inspires creativity through play and curiosity. Consider two different ordinary objects, then combine them to make a brand new product!
Check out the activity video:
Entrepreneurs can use play and their curiosity about the world around them to explore and innovate products and services. To create something new that does not exist requires the use of imagination. Using our imagination to consider ‘wacky’ ideas leads to creative ideas and what might become a product or service that changes the world.
Once you complete the activity, ask everyone who played:
- What did you do to show curiosity and creativity?
- How do entrepreneurs come up with new ideas? Do you think you did any of those things today when you were coming up with wacky inventions?
- Did you like using existing products and coming up with new ways to use them? How might that help you as an entrepreneur?
