Rhapsodical rhyming

Write the following words in a column. Set the timer for 10-15 minutes write as many rhymes as you can for each. Make some up!
splat
cocoa
football
glimmer
nemesis
hammock
scramble
craze
inane
geranium
frump
opaline
rhapsodize
(Hint, if you get stuck on a word, lop off letters or syllables starting from the beginning and pronounce what's left out loud. That is, geranium might get you stuck, but -um might get you going.)

When your 10-15 minutes are up, go back and circle your favorite words. You may want to write them on a clean piece of paper if you think you'll get distracted by the other words. Set the timer for 10-15 minutes and use those as a writing prompt.

If you didn't do the rhyming prompt, just take the above words and use as a writing prompt.
