Kids Invent Halloween Pranks And We Choose One To Build

We run Kids Invent Stuff - the YouTube channel where 5-11-year-olds can get their inventions built and tested by real engineers.

Last month we wrote about our new invention challenge here, where we invited kids to send us their ideas for inventions to prank people with this Halloween.

We were sent loads of brilliant invention ideas and as always it was really hard to pick which one we’re going to build for the challenge. We were sent lots of video entries from kids this month, and you can see some of our favourite ideas in this week’s episode and find out which invention we'll be building:

Don't worry if you missed this challenge as we set a different invention challenge every month, so there's plenty of opportunities for kids to get their inventions built and tested.

We're very excited to start building Chester’s Scarecrowtron, so we can test it out by pranking a few people:


















We love seeing all the invention ideas we’re sent, but now it’s time to order all the parts we need to build the Scarecrowtron. The build episode will be out on the 21st October 2017 and the test on the 28th October, so we’ll be back then to show you how we get on!

If you want to see some of our other invention challenges and some of the crazy things we’ve built, then check out our YouTube channel.

Keep inventing!

Hey! We are 'Kids Invent Stuff', a youtube channel that brings to life kids' invention ideas. Run by Ruth Amos & Shawn Brown, we set a different invention challenge each month and 5-11 year olds submit their invention ideas at as picture or videos. We then choose an invention to bring to life and film the process of building and testing it. We then upload the videos to our channel
