Stimulate creativity with a wide variety of objects in an ‘Inventor’s Box.’
Just by calling it an ‘inventors box’ encourages a different way of thinking about junk.
It’s not just about making things, but having unique ideas and creating something different.
This comes from a site called The Educators Spin On It and I love the range of things that they have put in their box.
Not just the usual cartons, tubes and bottle tops but objects you can take apart and use in different ways.
Have a look and see.
Fits very well with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)
