The "30 Circles" activity is a simple yet powerful way to inspire creative thinking. Using the attached image containing 30 blank circles, give yourself 3 minutes to fill them in with whatever crosses your mind (see here for more detail). Remember that ideating in this way is about quantity over quality, and there are no wrong circles. Get creative, and have fun! We'd love to see your circles, so feel free to share on Twitter or Google+ with #dare2design.

Thanks, Emma and Sarah! What if we put circles like this all around campus and let our community "graffiti" on them? How might we make this an ongoing community activity? What if our lockers, for example, gave kids a chance to ideate in this way? See a similar idea Elsa Fridman Randolph shared on how a few teachers turned uninspiring lockers into book spines: https://teachersguild.org/challenge/how-might-we-create-rituals-and-routines-that-establish-a-culture-of-innovation-in-our-classrooms-and-schools/discover/unlearning-the-need-to-wait-for-permission.
