Creative Thinking Prompt: How else can a leaf be used?

How else can a leaf be used?

When you brainstorm, write down all your ideas as they come to you. Do not analyze them. This is not the time for that because you want to think up the most original, creative idea you can. The more ideas you have, the more unusual your ideas become. Eventually, you run out of ideas. Don’t stop. Push yourself to think of at least five more ideas because at this point unique ideas originate.

Think Deeper: Find three different types of leaves. Using your five senses, brainstorm what else can these leaves be used for.

How did your ideas change from your initial brainstorming session? Did you develop some new ideas? Did the different leaves affect what type of ideas you brainstormed? Are your ideas different for each type of leaf?
