"Seeing" Design

Design is everywhere.  It is in nature:  the way a long leaf curls onto another leaf, and then gives way to a flower.  It is in the sidewalk:  the way the crevices and cracks form an impromptu pattern on the ground.  It is in in your child's smile : the way the corners of the mouth gently curve upward onto plump cheeks you just want to pinch - they are so cute!

Take the time to "see" design.  You will see your house, your yard, the "usual" things in a very different light.  You can even keep a small journal to write down your discoveries.  This is a great project for both parents and kids alike.  It will stretch your creativity and writing muscles.
