let's go seed spotting

Step 1:  

Walk around the garden or the park and keep your eyes wide open. Look on the ground, under trees, and even near flowers. Seeds can be hiding in the most unexpected places

Step 2: 

When you find a seed, gently pick it up and put it in your bag. Remember, seeds are like nature's little secrets, so treat them with care

Step 3: 

Notice the seed's shape, colour, and size. Is it round, flat, or maybe even spikey? You can use your magnifying glass to take a closer look
