Visual Thinking Practice: Overlapping Letters

Visual Thinking Practice - Overlapping Letters - Melinda Walker OneSquigglyLine

Another simple visual thinking exercise anyone who can write can do. It also makes a great ice-breaker or energizer during longer meeting, workshops, etc.

All you do is choose a word and write the letters of that word really big. Be sure to overlap them some and rotate as needed to make things interesting. It's also fun to switch up upper and lowercase letters. Leave it as is or color in the closed shapes, like I did above. Then give it to someone and see if they can figure out the word.

What word did I write? Post it in the comments if you can figure it out.

(Hint: It's seven letters.)
