Turn off the TV and tune into your own imagination. Enjoy each moment, allowing your creativity to unfold in the kitchen, craft space or in nature.

Next time you visit your local park or go out for a walk, collect some small-ish seeds to use in this activity. We have used a combination of seeds from the kitchen, black sesame seeds, some breakfast cereal and some little nuts (from a Bottle Brush Tree) we collected at the park down the road. This activity would be fun for big or little children - they would just need a more or less complicated design.
