Create an Invention!
Leonardo da Vinci is probably the most famous Renaissance Man. He was one of the most famous artists of all time but he was also a scientist and inventor. Da Vinci liked to experiment with his materials. His experiments were not always successful. One of his most famous paintings, a fresco called "The Last Supper" has almost completely faded away due to his experimentation with painting materials and processes. Da Vinci’s inventive nature was also responsible for inventing a flying machine hundreds of years before the Wright brothers left the ground. Da Vinci was truly a creative genius. In this activity, you and your child will create your own invention and help your imaginations take flight!
