Seed Pod Creatures
Living in Brisbane, I love the exotic flowering trees which add colour across the city. These trees drop interesting seed pods and nuts which make great free craft materials. Seed Pod Creatures are fun and easy to make and are a great way for children to explore natural shapes and textures.

We found interesting seed pods which had fallen from this tree and picked one up to make our orange grouper
