4 Engaging Game Ideas to Build Your Team’s Creativity - Also try Aromatheraphy with personality scents
It is a misconception to think that creativity is inborn and cannot be developed.
With practice, everything we once could not do could be easily done (except for those that defies our human capabilities, like flying on earth - please don’t try this even with supervision).
Let me give you a simple example. It’s not like we know how to walk right after we are born. We learn; by falling, by observing, by trying to stand up again and by not giving up and learning from our previous mistakes. So I would say perseverance and practice are keys to building creativity or learning anything else, for that matter.
Hence here are some simple games you can play with your peers to make your practice even more enjoyable!
1. Complete the Piece
2. Find a Tagline
1) Find several random, interesting, ambiguous or unusual pictures.
2) Pass down or show a picture from your selection to each person in the game for them to think and create a tagline.
3) Present their completed ideas while also explaining the taglines they have come up with.
Objective: Brainstorm ideas that can catch people’s attention yet carry across the message you want to bring about from the picture. For example, their tagline could narrate a story, contains humor or even point out moral values.
3. Product Ideation
1) Prepare some easily sourced recyclables or materials. For example plastic bottles, plastic bags, news papers, balloons, markers, paints, tapes and scissors.
2) In your separate teams, set an allocated time for the teams to discuss what and how they want to create using these available materials.
3) After discussion, using their selected materials, give about 20 to 30mins for each team to complete their product.
4) Allow each team to present their final product, explaining its functionality and applications.
Objective: With limited resources, this game serves to develop one’s creativity and innovative minds, while also working out feasible ideas together as a team to produce desired results.
4. Innovate on the Existing
1) Prepare an item - preferable an item that is easily sourced yet closely relevant to our lives. For example, you could choose a paperclip as the ‘Existing item’.
2) In separate teams, each team is provided with a piece of paper and some time to write down its possible uses other than the existing uses to clip papers.
3) Present the possible uses written on the piece of paper to the rest of the teams and explain their uses.
4) Possible Innovative answers to the ‘Existing item’ Paperclip could be: earrings, nail cleaner, a pick lock or even hair clip.
Objective: To not limit your views on the existing item’s application according to its known usage, but innovate and think out of the box.
Creativity is everywhere, even in hard science we have to use creativity to create new ideas to advance our world.
To build our creativity, there are also workshops you can attend. One example is a Perfume Workshop. I have listed their website links for interested parties to find out more information about their workshops.
