Here are a couple of suggestions to help you get going. I also hope they trigger some more interesting ideas for you to work on.
- Hang a large white chart paper with a few black dots on it. Ask the participants what they see. Most will reply that they see the black dots or 'x'number of black dots. There could be some who say they see a big white chart paper with black dots. (if no body mentions the white chart paper you can point out that most times we focus on the small black dots instead of seeing the large white chart) . Next ask the participants to copy the same dots on a clean sheet of paper. Now challenge them to connect the dots and come up with a sketch or picture. ( This is a pointer to how one can turn negative situations into positive images and results)
- Prepare a few quotes/ proverbs on Positive Thinking. Then cut each word out from each proverb and put the set of words pertaining to a proverb into an envelope. Thus you will have as many envelopes as the number of proverbs you have. Form teams of teachers and give one envelope to each team. Tell them they have to find out the proverb in the envelope and each participant should have one word and stand in the right order so that they form the proverb / quote. The first team to form the right proverb can be given a group prize. E.g Every cloud has a silver lining. or There is light at the end of the tunnel etc.

A nice one from Mr Jacob.
If I copy his idea, please put up a picture and ask people to describe it.
After seeing that
one would say "he is laying a brick".
The second would say ' he is building a wall'.
The smartest would say "HE IS BUILDING A HOUSE".
Now you know what such a suggestive picture should contain and what it should conceal.
Till you get the answer you want, keep involving every one.
If no one comes up trumps, you can always steal the show with the best answer.
