Nothing fuels up creativity and imagination than trying to make or invent something. Kids are quite creative and imaginative early on. But when they do not have an outlet to let their creative juices run free, they sometimes begin to lose it. As they grow, certain rules they need to follow in life will begin to lessen their creativity and imagination. But parents can try to help them continue improve these skills by providing them with tools to help them think out of the box, so to speak. This is where the Makey Makey Invention Kit may be quite useful.
The Makey Makey is an invention kit that lets kids connect almost any object to a computer to perform a certain function. The Makey Makey allows different objects to interact with a computer and perform unique functions that can only be limited by a child’s creative mind. With the Makey Makey, it is possible for kids to experiment how certain object interact with the computer program and be made to do creative things. Create a piano using bananas for keys. Turn everyday objects into touchpads. Create life-size game controllers that you can jump on to move a character.
The Makey Makey is a simple invention kit that is ideal even for beginners. It features the Makey Makey module that allows users to make any object that can conduct even a tiny bit of electricity to function like an input device or a key. It also comes with 7 alligator cables, 6 connector wires, a USB cord, stickers and instructions. Kids can then store the different parts into the tin case the set comes with. The Makey Makey Invention Kit is a good way to encourage kids to put their creativity and imagination into practice. Ideal for kids from 8 years old and above, the Makey Makey Invention Kit is available at Toys R’ Us for $50.
