Creative Thinking Prompt: Doughnuts!

Creative Thinking Prompt: Doughnuts!

Yummy! Today is National Doughnut Day!

Imagine you are the Lochness Monster, a centaur, a mermaid or a unicorn enjoying a delicious doughnut. What part of that doughnut do you enjoy eating the most? The flavor, the frosting, what’s inside the doughnut, etc.

Create a new doughnut for an imaginary creature.

What will the flavor be? How does the flavor connect to your creature?

What type of frosting or glaze will you use?

What will the shape of your doughnut be – a fritter, a jelly-filled, a cake, a longjohn, or something else?

What decorations will you add?

What will you name your new creation?

EXTENDED CONNECTIONS:
