Combining…A new creative thinking exercise for the weekend…

April 27, 2012 § Leave a comment

Combining is a bit like playing with Mr Potato head-you combine different facial features and add them to a plastic potato. You combine different foods to make a beautiful meal.  But what I want you to try is mixing things up a bit.  Try combining unusual things together and see what you get. Like mixing natural perfumes to get a beautiful smell out of odd combinations.  Who knows the world is your oyster. Tell me what you cam up with..

Creative thinking game….

April 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

Okay lets play the game of Combining..

This is how you play.

FIrst pick an item…any old item.

Okay I picked a spoon….Now if We could combine it what would we combine it with? Okay you got 1 minute….

A bowl, a tray, a saucer, a cup, a fork, spagetti……Come n keep going you have one minture…come up with all the things you can combine it with in one minute….how can you multiply the purpose of the spoon? I know you can do it…Your goal is to come up with as many things as you can possibly combine a  spoon with….come on you can do it.

Okay what did you get?

if you scored over 6 items good, over 10 better….over 20 you are something!! Great work.
