Find as many things as you can that match the colour of your tag.
Around your home, in your garden or even on a walk; once you start looking you'll start noticing your colour in all sorts of places!
- Take photos of your tag next to the colour matches. You can find examples on my website and by searching #FindTheColour on Instagram;

You can tag me too @hello.bessmartin and if you don't have Instagram, not to worry, the tags are sent with some more information tomake sure you can email, or even text your photos back.
What will happen with the photos? Well... you'll have to wait and see!
