If you can dream it, you can invent it. It’s never too early to start exploring, discovering and inventing the next great thing. As we make our way through the school year, it’s important to encourage kids to use their imagination, be active and dream up something new either inside or outside of the classroom. That’s why Frito-Lay Variety Pack is celebrating consumers’ boundless imaginations and continuing its legacy of encouraging families to enjoy the fun of educational exploration with Dreamvention. They are asking dreamers, age 7 and older, to “dreamvent” a fun and simple invention for the chance to have their creation be brought to life and be awarded a $250K grand prize!
