You will need:

Two sheets of paper
A double page spread in your notebook.


Part One:

Think of your favourite season.
On one page or sheet, write a list of ‘ingredients’ for that season…everything you can think of that makes it special, in five minutes.

Part Two:

Organise your list of ingredients to make a recipe for your favourite season OR a recipe to turn one season into another.


Example of possible outcomes:

A Recipe For Autumn by Casey Bottono

Two tablespoons of peace and quiet
To a cup of crunchy leaves
Just a dash of that feeling
In front of a cosy fire.

The echo of crispness in the air
A splash of autumn colour
The sense of settling down
Leave in a warm dry place…for a month.
