Kids invent the darndest things

This is where it all starts. A fun little competition of moon boot racing with your buddy and as you scroll down you'll see it get more and more interesting. Here Margot McCrillis, left, and her friend, Madison Lewis, share these boots with elastic material inside to... I guess make you feel like you're walking on the moon just before gravity wakes you up on earth and breaks your ankle, but they looked like they were having fun.

Here I think Madison was working on inventing a biathlon of kite flying and moon walking. I'm sure we'll see Madison in London in 2012.
This image is a perfect example of pinch of skill and a pound of perseverance. The sun was setting on 10th street and I really liked having that as a background, as if they were driving their own play vehicle through the city landscape. Anyway, I thought it was cool, to be really honest. The posse included Margot McCrillis, 10, far left in moon boots, uses a cart to push her friends, Amber Wooden, 9, top left, Madison Lewis, 10, Amberlynn Lewis, 8, bottom far left, Bertram Emmanuel, 3, and Quinton Lewis, 6, around during an informal picnic of several staff, students and family members of Columbus State University's Corn Center for the Visual Arts Wednesday afternoon in downtown Columbus.
Poor Margot was not only worn out from pushing all her friends around, but from all the effort so were her socks.
And I couldn't resist getting one of 23-month-old Oskar Israel-Wertz as he starts test trials on his new invention, a croquet club that mows the grass while you play.
