For this divergent thinking exercise, think about what you can do with a bobby pin. Spend a few minutes thinking of all the different ways you can use it. Don’ t hesitate, though to make it a different size or use a different material. The idea is to be creative. You can set an alarm for five minutes and see how many you can come up with or you can spend more time on it. The idea is that as you run out of ideas, if you take a step back, you’ll be able to come up with more ideas.
