Do Something Fun
Though I do love comedies and enjoy board games, I began this assignment with an intense battle. My friends Tony and Kelvin had nerf guns and I had a sword. We fought like we were six years old. I figured since children were more creative, I'd do something that brought out my inner child. We were running around sixth floor, laughing, yelling and acting like assassins. It was awesome.

Ideas about Winter
Next, I created a mind map of winter like the ones we made in class. I doodled on it and broke out the crayons.
My chosen sub themes: Snowball Fights, Seasonal Depression, Christmas Decorating
The next part of this assignment proved to be the hardest. I began asking questions like, "How can I change ice fishing?" and "What's the WORST thing I could put in this snow globe?" Tony and Kelvin thought of some interesting things too. I wrote everything down...from a glow in the dark shovel to fireproof stockings to hot chocolate that refills itself. Then I selected my 12 favorite ideas. Here's some early sketches:
I decided that 10 and 11 weren't original enough.
10 Silly Products
