Sow the seed of creativity with our latest coffee break exercise

Sow the seed of creativity with our latest coffee break exercise! This activity should only take fifteen minutes or so, and could leave you with a glut of inspiring ideas to work on.

Set your timer for five minutes. List – or create a mind map or spider diagram – anything to do with apples. So for example, your list might include:

    •    orchards
    •    blossom
    •    varieties of apple
    •    recipes
    •    fairy tales
    •    Garden of Eden
    •    Isaac Newton
Allow your imagination to travel!

For the next ten minutes, create a poem or the beginning of a story that is set in an orchard and/or features a recipe.
