This summer project is found in our newest guide, A Simple Summer, and it has already been such a hit! We did it with our local nature group and kids from ages 3 to 15 participated and enjoyed it.
What you need:
Pinch off a small piece of air dry clay and roll into a 1"-1.5" ball.
Press the ball into the shape of a small bowl.
Place a small pinch of various wildflower seeds into the bowl, then add a teaspoon of potting soil on top.
Pinch the clay closed, incorporating the seeds and soil into the air dry clay.
Gently roll the clay seed bomb in loose potting soil. This will help nourish the seeds when they're planted. If not using immediately, let the seed bombs dry for 1-2 days on a piece of parchment paper.
After creating these seed bombs, toss a handful in the middle of your garden or in a field with healthy topsoil to create a wildflower garden that is great for attracting pollinators! About a month after dropping the seeds, be sure to revisit the drop spots to see the beginnings of wildflowers. This project is a bit messy and best done outdoors.
