Hey there parents, guardians, older siblings, and everyone else!
Welcome to GWR Kids, a safe space for cool youngsters looking to learn all about our amazing record breakers - or even become one themselves!
We aim to inspire kids to be their most creative selves, and maybe even get away from their screens for a bit to do something fun and different.
While loads of kids have earned record titles over the years, we’ve now launched a series of records specially for under 16s.
We’ve got all the info for you here…
Every day, at Guinness World Records, we have the honour of helping the record holders of tomorrow believe in their incredible skills.
But having the guidance of a mentor can do a lot of difference. 🤯
That is why we created the new Guinness World Records Mentor Scheme for six lucky winners. Each of our six record holders will help one mentee via up to four one-to-one online sessions. During the sessions, you can ask questions and chat about your goals. Your mentor will also share some record-breaking secrets. 👀
From magicians to adventurers, meet our fantastic mentors:
- Jason Auld, Heaviest single weight lifted by barbell overhead press while riding a unicycle 🎉
- Jesse Dufton, First blind person to lead a climb of Old Man of Hoy 🧗
- Karenjeet Kaur Bains, Most times to squat lift own bodyweight in one minute (female) 🏋️
- Lee Spencer, Longest distance rowed solo by an amputee 🚣♂️
- Martin Rees, Completing 20 magic tricks while submerged in a tank of water 🪄
- Victoria Evans, Fastest female solo row across the Atlantic on the Trade Winds I route (open-class) 🌊
The Guinness World Records Mentor Scheme 2023 is open for applicants aged 11 to 18 from June 1 until June 18, 23:59 (BST). Check out how to apply here! 🏆
We’ve been working hard to create loads of new records specially designed for people under the age of 16.
From most socks put on one foot in 30 seconds to fastest time to arrange the alphabet, we’ve got loads of fun records for kids to attempt.
You can find a full list of our records and all the information about how to take part here.
They will need you as their parent or guardian to apply for them. Responsibility first!
And keep checking back as we’re planning to add even more records!
Oh, and did we mention we’ve also got loads of fun and educational activities for kids right here on our website? Check out our Educators page and our Activity Sheets too.
GWR also has a dedicated YouTube channel just for kids, chock full of fun and safe content.
Head to our GWR KIDS channel to see videos of records being broken and plenty of themed compilations.
Who knows, your little one could be watching their own record-breaking attempts on there one day!
