"The best places are always hidden. Go find them."
Fun-shaped food is more exciting than plain-shaped food? Think Goldfish® crackers vs. Cheez-Its®. Or Animal Crackers vs. thier cookie-shaped counterparts. That's why we love gingerbread man cookies so!
Use your imagination to invent a new fun-shaped food out of an existing plain-shaped food. I once grew some scary-looking carrots in my backyard garden because I didn't thin them out enough during the growing process. Some came out knarled and twisted and plain freaky looking. So I called them Scarrots and had a food manufacturer contact me about it (more about this later). Give your newly-invented food a creative and memorable name. Doodle or sketch what it looks like and write a short, snappy description of it. Make it real! Imagine it to life...
While you're thinking about that, here's a fun diversion to sharpen your neural networks. How many words can you find in my gingerbread man puzzle? Let's run with a theme. Pretend you're chasing him and only have five minutes to find the words before he dares cross the river on the alligator's snout. Ready to beat the clock? Set a timer and go!
baking soda, butter, cake, candies, christmas, cinnamon, cookies, decoration, eggs, flour, ginger, holiday, house, icing, man, molasses, smile, sugar, recipe, vanilla
