Here’s my favorite from last time: Crafty Moms Share Famous Black Americans and Their Famous Inventions. 

Famous-Black-American-Inventions-Creative-Kids-Blog-Hop-68

I love reading and knowing about who made which invention and helping children to realize people made the inventions we are using today. Crafty Moms Share has a blog post with pictures and more information at this link. I didn’t see George Washington Carver, my childhood hero for creating 300 products with the peanut, but that might be more difficult to understand as it involved chemistry. Toothpaste? Hopefully, the children are all using toothpaste! The formula for Crest was improved byDr. Herbert C. Smitherman Sr.  who also worked on many other products during his 29 years at Proctor and Gamble. We drink Folger’s coffee and have him to thank for his work on that product.

Did someone say ice cream? The ice cream scoop was the invention of Alfred L. Cralle.Patent for the ice cream scoop by Alfred L. Cralle
