If you’re looking for a cute and super easy Earth Day activity to do with your littles this is it. Earth Day seed bombs. That’s right, little balls of paper that look like earth that you can plant to grow wildflowers.


You will need:



1.) Take your scrap pieces of blue and green paper and rip in small pieces. I let my guys help me with this part and sort into bowls by matching color.

2.) Fill each bowl with warm water, enough to cover the top and let sit for 30 minutes.

4.) Squeeze out any additional water and put the shredded paper back in separate bowls.

5.) Take your wildflower seeds and sprinkle into the blue bowl, mix together

6.) Take a handful of blue paper/seed mixture and roll into a ball.

7.) Take some small pieces of shredded green paper and place into ball and roll to combine, making an earth shape.

8.) If planting right away, you can plant right in the ground following the directions on the back of the seed packet. If you’re not planting right away, let your seed bombs dry on a pan or cookie sheet lined with paper towel. Just soak for a little bit prior to planting.

    These look so cool! Is there a specific advantage to using paper with the seeds, or is it just for looks?

    These are so clever, a few years ago I actually bought some, but unfortunately they did not grow. I think this is a way they reforest after disasters.
