Oh you know, just creating a new DNA structure; no big deal. Love our little scientist!

For today's Happy Hour theme, we were inspired by our post on young inventors and asked readers to share pics of their little ones in creative mode. We got mini scientists, like the son (shown above) of TODAY Mom Jessica Atherton and we got builders, such as TODAY Mom Karilee Schmeckpeper and her daughter JeAnn (shown below), not to mention a whole crew that included artists, fort-builders and pumpkin carvers.
