Garden Seed Bombs Activity For Kids
Have you ever made Garden Seed Bombs? It’s a fun activity to do with kids and will really get them interested in gardening, in planting, caring for and tending for plants. My daughter and I grew a herb garden a while back and it was a fantastic and fun activity. Today’s activity is just as fun. Enjoy!

How To Make Garden Seed Bombs
Cut each piece of paper into about 1-inch squares and put them into a small dish. Keep each paper colour in its own dish.
Fill each dish with water just until the paper is covered. Soak the paper for about 20 minutes.
Take one of the bowls of paper and wring it out about halfway.
Put it in the food processor and pulse the paper into a pulp.
Repeat this with all the paper colours and put the pulp back into each of their bowls.
Sprinkle some seeds into each bowl of paper, mix them in a little, and press the pulp and seeds into balls.
If the pulp is a little dry, put a few sprinkles of water on the pulp. It will help it to hold its shape better.
Set the seed balls on a sheet pan to dry overnight.
Plant in your garden or anywhere you want flowers to grow.
