Stuck on a Deserted Island

Monday, 14 May 2012   |   Creativity Games

Deserted IslandThis week we're surviving.

Game:  There are 5 random words below.  You have just washed up on a deserted island and these words represent items that have also washed up.  Think of the most creative ways you could use these items to help you survive.

  • bottle
  • shoes
  • thermostat
  • piano
  • bicycle

Challenge:  For extra challenge your idea must incorporate at least 3 of these items.

Strategy: The thing about situations like this is that we can think about them in great detail and yet if it actually ever happend it would probably be entirely different to how we imagined it.  Some experiences are like this,  they are very hard to imagine.  That doesn't mean it wouldn't be fun to think about what we would do, were we to end up alone on a deserted island however.  And sometimes those ideas may turn out to be useful to us now. 

This can be a good way to spur some creative thinking.  Place yourself in a totally different scenario and come up with ideas for it.  Then see if any of them are of any use to you for your current challenge or project.


I sense creativity in you.  Join in below and let it flourish.
