Okay, clapping doesn’t seem that cool. But, Seven Wade set the world record for the most claps in one minute. He actually trained for this one too and got blisters from clapping so much. In December 2016, Seven clapped 1,080 times in one minute and beat the previous record by 60 claps.


2. Solved three Rubik’s Cubes while juggling


This one is crazy! In December 2017, Que Jianyu solved three Rubik’s Cubes while juggling them in 5 minutes and 6.61 seconds. He was only 13 at the time. He started solving Rubik’s Cubes when he was only six years old.

3. Jump Roping


Do you remember jump roping as a kid? One team that was in elementary school holds the record for most skips over one rope in one minute. The team of 12 jumpers jumped over the rope 230 times in one minute without tripping at all.

A group of elementary school kids broke two records with Legos. They put together the fastest assembly of 10,000 Legos in three hours. They also set the record for the longest Lego chain. It was 947 meters. They did all of this to raise awareness for a student who was suffering from a rare and fatal disease. Very inspiring!
