Creative Thinking Prompt: Look At It Another Way

Look at your surroundings in new ways to gain fresh perspectives.

What would it be like if you…

  1. Stand on top of your head so you are looking at the world-upside down.
  2. Wear a pair of color-tinted glasses.
  3. Use a magnifying to look at something up close and something far away.
  4. Pretend you are a tiny insect, looking upwards.
  5. Pretend you are an eagle flying through the sky, surveying the ground below.
  6. Pretend you are a new student at your school.
  7. Pretend you are an alien and just landed on Earth.
  8. Pretend you are traveling to a country where you don’t understand the language.
  9. Pretend you are the principal of your school.
  10. Pretend to switch bodies with your best friend.
  11. Pretend to be a spoke in your bike’s tire or a wheel on your skateboard.
  12. Pretend to be the ball in a kickball, baseball, soccer or tennis game.

Think Deeper:  Choose one of #4 – #12 perspectives. Imagine that perspective from a 360 degree perspective. Write a short story or poem or letter to a friend based on that perspective.

  1. Just found out they have magnifying glasses at the end of the aisle at ACE – needed a battery and couldn’t read the fine engraving on my watch. I bet you could do a whole post on what you can do in a hardware store!
