National Museum of Scotland
For more inspiration visit the National Museum of Scotland - Museum at Home for families. While launching a wide range of new summer exhibitions the museum has put together resources to discover brilliant bugs, bricks at home or my favourite, watch and explore including an animated adventure in ancient Egypt.
I'm a huge advocate in fun learning from drawing, colouring-in, watching incredibly creative and idea inspiring animations, to visiting some of the amazing museums, art galleries and much more. As you can imagine mostly travel-inspired (wink). Get the neocortex and thalamus parts of the brain stimulated. The power of imagination is an incredible thing! I have been tinkering with the idea of writing and illustrating my own series of children's books for years. Still a work in progress. Though I was excited to launch the first page of my up and coming children's colouring book. If you've missed it here is the link to download the colouring page, with one of the worlds famous wonders of the world and discover more about one of my favourite destinations Petra, Jordan.
I hope you have enjoyed reading and feeling inspired. Can't wait to read your comments and answer any questions you may have.
