Photo Essay - Indoor Theme

I am overtaking my second year of a photography course. I have to prepare an assignment- Photo essay of an indoor activity using flash. The requirements read "shoot a photo essay assignment of six black and white images. The photo essay should be along the lines of an "Indoor Theme" picture story format. Photograph the activity in six progressive steps where continuity is maintained. The main light source in each shot is tobe flash.......
I would appreciate your suggestions about an interesting subject and how to control flash. I have just acquired two flash heads 600 and 1200W, a soft box and 2 reflectors - umbrella type- one with black fabric and the other with whiterelfectorbut have not got to use it as yet. I am finding very difficult to find a good indoor subject. I was thinking about some putting together a lego game or cooking (my kitchen is too small and have no space to take the photos). I am still with the idea of the lego, but would like something more attractive. Some of my collegue colleages have already done make up, cooking, etc etc.
I would really love to hear from you the experts.

  For the light, I would think about bouncing it off the ceiling instead of trying to use softboxes or reflectors. That way you'd get overall lighting and you could put the light in one spot and let yourself and whoever you shoot the freedom to move around if they need to.
Your name sounds French, so if you are in France, have any wood working craftsmen that make stuff by hand? Furniture? Or bakers?
You know better than anyone what's around the area where you live.
