Lee Ward, of Santa Barbara, CA. created today back in 2005 to go along with her three books. “101 Ways To Bug Your Parents”, “101 Ways to Bug Your Teacher” and “101 Ways To Bug Your Friends and Enemies”. She picked today because it is Ben Franklin’s birthday. Ben Franklin invented swim flippers when he was a kid, Frank Epperson invented the Popsicle and Albert Sadacca invented Christmas Lights.
How to celebrate – See how many more kid inventors you can find. Start a kids inventions club. Give kids the tools they need to learn.
