Making wildflower seed bombs is a great way to celebrate Earth day. Not only will you have lots of fun making them but it will be amazing to see the effect you have on the Earth when the flowers come up and bloom all Spring and Summer long! You can use the wildflower seed bombs to spread beauty all over. Just pick some places that are looking unkempt and shabby, like a roadside area, vacant lot or unfinished construction area. . . anyplace that has been sitting without care for a long time. Then on Earth Day, you take your seed bombs and spread some nature love.
Earth Day Craft: Seed Bombs
What you will need:
- wildflower seeds
- thin paper bags
- Take thin brown paper lunch sacks and tear them into wide 3×4 strips
- In a bowl mix seeds and soil together.
- Add water a little at a time until a stiff consistency is formed.
- Use hands to roll into balls about 2 inches thick.
- Wrap the seed/soil balls in the brown paper and twist the top to keep in intact.
When you deposit these on the ground, the paper will keep the seeds protected from animals and the environment until the seeds can start to grow. When April showers come, the bags will disintegrate and the seeds will be set free to take root. The bags will fully decompose into the soil in only a couple of weeks.
Every time you pass by the area that used to look unsightly, you can delight in the beautiful, colorful flowers that you helped grow!
TIP: You can purchase wildflower seeds that are indigenous to your particular area. Nurseries, hardware stores and stores like Walmart have inexpensive wildflower seeds for sale. You can also find them online and have them delivered to your door!
