More Creative Solutions – Finding Solutions to Everyday Problems

As you may remember, Lulu is earning her Creative Solutions Girl Scout badge. The next problem to solve is:

Shipwrecked on an Island.

You are shipwrecked on a tropical island and have no idea when you will be rescued. The island is uninhabited but there is a stream of fresh water. If you could have one person and five items (but no boat) with you, who and what would you choose? Why? What choices would your friends and family make? Are they similar to yours?

Here is what we came up with.

Mom's answers

Person: Dear husband, of course. He knows exactly why I would bring him. He would get the coconuts, build the shelter, fish, make the fire, and so much more. I also think that this is rather funny because I would NOT want to be stranded on a deserted island with MYSELF, but DH hardly has any choice but to choose me. I got the better end of this deal for sure. tee hee hee!


Laptop. This island has wireless.
Good shoes. Shoes that will protect my feet.
Blanket. Sleep is important to me and I will need a blanket.

Dear Husband's answers

Person: Me – ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha


Endless supply of toilet paper. Seriously, we are stranded on a desert island and he wants toilet paper?
Working radio.
Gun with endless ammunition.
Endless supply of rum.
Suntan lotion. Did he mean sunblock?

Lulu's answers

Person: Daddy – of course – always Daddy!


Phone (with service).
Fishing pole. (She watches enough Survivor to know that she will need this.)

What about you? Who and what would you bring?
