It's INTERACTIVE TUESDAY are you excited? You should be because you need to go on a scavenger hunt! Look online however you normally search for things to find the following 10 things:

  1. An item on Keri Smith's list of 100 ideas
  2. The name of soap from the brand Lush
  3. A song lyric written by Newton Faulkner
  4. Somebody you've met
  5. The answer to a riddle
  6. A website that is green
  7. A fact about Australia
  8. Something recycled
  9. A book title with the word "letter" in it
  10. Bold text

Once you've found everything on the list in whatever way you think fits the description put it in the comment section! Pass it on too, no harm done by scavenging in pairs or competing against a friend or co-worker!
