invention poem for kids

the son of flynn - daft punk

Dreambeast says:

Create an invention that will make the world a better place and that you will be remembered for.

Create a class display in the shape of a question mark that represents everyone's inventions in a collage of symbols.





From Pac-Man, Oz, the moonwalk, Jaws

To rockets and sliced bread

Once sparks that lit up question marks

Ideas in human heads...


The PS4, X-box, the door

The BMX, the kite

King Kong, Ping Pong and hip hop songs

The book, to read and write


The Pyramids, New York, Madrid

The submarine, the chair

The bed, cheese spread and Barbie’s head

The wheel, the bulb, the square


The swimming pool, the slide, the school

The fizzy pop, the gum

The shoe, kung fu, the flushing loo

The phone, the clock, the drum


The microchip, the paper clip

Cartoons, the ball, the screw

Blue jeans, baked beans and trampolines

The toothbrush, pens, shampoo


The aeroplane, ice-cream, champagne

The world wide web, the fridge

French fries, cat’s eyes and custard pies

The road, the car, the bridge


Wonder what's in your head

Magnify the sparks

Imagine what you will invent

With your own question marks
