Imagining a Different World
Ages 3+, artistic, imaginative
Using our imaginations can help us envision more just and compassionate solutions to challenges we face. In this project, we practice imagining what the world would be like with a few tweaks.
Materials: Drawing, collage and/or writing materials
How to: Pick from the following prompts and use one (or more!) to inspire a drawing, collage, poem, story or sculpture based on what the world might be like. Collaborate and/or talk about the prompt you chose as you work on it. As always, feel free to create your own prompt!
A world where…
- …flowers grew as big as buildings!
- …everyone has plenty to eat and a place to live.
- …we have roller skates instead of feet!
- …you can talk to other animals.
