Tell me please which phrasal verb is the most appropriate for the following sentence.

Now that I have already learnt these words, I want you to think up/make up/make a few sentence with them.

I guess it is obvious that think up and make up mean the same in the sentence, but what about make? Is there a difference between the phrases in the context? Which fits the context the best?

All the choices are understandable.

"make up" is probably the best. It means to invent a story.

"make" is a very generic word. It's correct. However, a bit abrupt and short here.

"think up" - notice in the dictionary it says "informal". If you are in a casual setting, then it's ok.
