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.

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!
