Creative Thinking Prompt: Create a Healthy Kid Ad

Creative Thinking Prompt: Create a Healthy Kid Ad

           

What do these two images have in common?

These ads promote health: healthy food and healthy lungs.

Think about:

The main purpose of advertising is to make people aware of a product and persuade them to buy it or use it.

What is the message that these two advertisements are promoting?

How is imagery used to influence people?

How might you improve these ads?

Creative Thinking Prompt: Design an advertisement that educates kids on the importance of being healthy. It can be a product like an exercise machine, game, book, food, or exercise video. Think about in what ways a kid is like the product you have chosen. How can you use that to represent a healthy kid in your ad? What colors might you use? How will you lay out your design?  Draw your ad. Don’t forget to add a slogan – a short phrase that people can easily remember.
