Kids are amazing…

They’re ambitious. Resilient. Honest (maybe some times a little too honest). But above all… They’re creative. When you fuel them with a little guidance, and an open invitation to try, the results can be astonishing. Here are two stories of inspiring kids who used their creativity and ingenuity to make their dreams come true.

Kid Film Fest

When 9-year-old Aven was told he couldn’t enter his films into film festivals because they only accepted “kid films created by adults,” he turned that rejection into a challenge.

With the help of his parents, Dustin and Katherine, Aven set out to create the first ever Kid Film Fest, a film festival for kids, by kids. Though it took a lot of hard work, a few online calls for entries, and the help of his friends, in a few short weeks Aven rolled out the red carpet and gave other aspiring young filmmakers a chance to see their awesome films on the big screen.

Watch to see how this creative kid made his dream happen.

Love in the Mirror

For a 10-year-old, Jonas Corona has quickly proven himself to be a successful entrepreneur with a heart of gold.

Observing the world around him at the age of 6, he noticed how many kids in his neighborhood lacked access to basic needs, such as food and clothing. He tried to participate in established volunteer programs, only to be told he was too young.

Driven by his call to help, he set out to create his own program, Love in the Mirror. “What the name means is that everybody should look in the mirror and love what they see,” says Jonas. “It’s always important to love yourself.”

Watch and be inspired by Jonas’ determination, and the creative way he proved kids can make a difference in the world around them.

At Kix, we believe that all kids are creative. Sometimes, they just need a place to start. Check out some of these projects to get your kids’ creative juices flowing:
