Okay I just learned this activity in English class today and it's a good activity to get the creative part of your brain awake.

The activity is pretty simple:

What you do is take 3 random items and think of a creative new item to make out of the 3 or some kind contraption or something you can do with the items once they are put together.

Example: Tree Branch, 6ft of rope, large rock

Wizard's Staff

Take the tree branch, place the rock on top and wrap the rope around the length of it sort of like a reinforcement.


Stupid example, I know, but you get the picture.

Only rules are that it has to make sense, it can't be some thing like balancing an anvil on a pencil.

On the post just answer the one above you, then list three more items for the next person.

A brand new toy

Take the mouse, tie it's tail to the pencil, and let your little brother spin it around and around and around...

entertaining for your cats AND siblings!

An attempt at making a chocolate sause.


2004 Mustang, Tortuga, and Space Marines.
Seclusion among the ferns of what seems like a mystical forest by flourishing elms and and oaks. Looking up at twilight's dwellings up above, where the stars sit on their perches to await dawn... That lunar crescent forever hangs there, just another star that seems so much closer, half covered by what you sit upon right then. That is a true paradise. Just to let yourself escape to those divine heavens...
