365: Kid Inventors' Day

January 17 is Kids Inventors' Day, and what better way to spend it than a long playdate with our favorite kids! 

We did a few different things for Kids Inventors' Day. One of the biggest things we did was use the Nugget Comfort Couch to invent brand new play spaces. Our more mobile friends enjoyed making tunnels, caves, and mountains. We also played an old favorite -- there's lava on the floor. And, a newly invented variation -- there's not lava on the floor but there's lava on everything else. Jude played in some of the more sound structures with tight supervision, and he enjoyed watching everyone run around when it wasn't as safe to be under the creation.
After dinner, Jude sat down and ate a popsicle. The popsicle was made by a kid inventor in 1905. Frank Epperson was only 11 when he invented it! Jude's was a milksicle, but I think he got the point of the sweet kid invention. 
In the future, I hope that I can cultivate a space where Jude feels free to invent and create without judgment!
