Try This Now:
Try cutting out a hole on two sides of closed cardbox book. Place a blank piece of paper inside the box and a small, upright mirror outside of the box that reflects the image of the paper so you can see it. Place your dominant hand inside the box on the opposite end from the mirror and draw a picture of a star on the paper looking only at the image reflected in the mirror.
To make it harder, try drawing a building, a horse and even a person. This will definitely challenge how your brain usually sees the world.
