Thinking About Things
When you visit a library, have you ever noticed that all books of a certain type are grouped together? You will find all the books about sports in one place and all the books with mystery stories in another place. For some reason, people like to group together things that have certain characteristics in common. In this activity, see how many things you can think of that have the same characteristics.
We can often find uses for things that were originally intended for some other purpose. For example, children sometimes use old boxes for doll houses or as a place to keep their toys. For each of the following objects, list as many interesting and unusual uses as you can. Let your mind wander and try to think of some uses that no one else has ever thought of. List all the ideas that come to mind, even if they seem silly or impractical. You may change the objects to suit your purposes.
