Creative Thinking Prompt: I See You

Creative Thinking Prompt: I See You

  First, brainstorm different ways that “I see you” can be interpreted.

 Second, combine.

Select from your list a few ways and combine them. Play around with these combinations. Have fun!

  Third, evaluate.

Which combination is most unusual? Which one creates emotion or an “aha” moment? Which one is “boring”? Which one has humor? Can a trait from one be substituted for a trait in another combination? Has you seen this done before? If so, how can you make it original?

 Fourth, elaborate.

Add details to your combination. Extend it.

These are some of my thoughts and where they led as I went through the creative process.

A) eyeball art; play on words I Sea You->  an image of the ocean in the iris of an eye

B) graffiti art; font; text message ICU ->  could mean an emergency room or combine with graffiti art to create images within the letters of ICU to create meaning for I See You

C) body movement; sign language ->  through a telescope or binoculars is an image of you in the sea

 Creative Thinking Prompt: How many ways can you create meaning for “I See You”?

Creative Thinking Prompt: What Does & What Doesn’t

Creative Thinking Prompt: What Does & What Doesn’t

For this creative thinking prompt, I am taking inspiration from a page in Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s THE WONDER BOOK.

called “Further Clarification”

What Grows on Trees & What Doesn’t Grow on Trees

 

Creative Thinking Prompt: What Goes On A Pizza & What Doesn’t Go On A Pizza

Brainstorm for two minutes a list of “Things That Go On A Pizza.”

Then brainstorm “What Doesn’t Go On A Pizza” for two minutes.

Look over your two lists and circle the two most wacky items.

Next brainstorm lists for “What Goes In A Snow Pile” & “What Doesn’t Go In a Snow Pile”.

Think Deeper: Make up your own What Does & What Doesn’t and give to your family and friends to think up.
