Simple DIY Seed Bombs

By:

Kids will love helping you make these Simple DIY Seed Bombs.  Great for giving as gifts for a wedding, baby shower, or Mother's Day, these DIY seed bombs are perfect for teaching your kids about growth and caring for the Earth.  They'll also love getting creative in the kitchen with you and they'll want to create these colorful seed bombs in every color of the rainbow.  Spend a rainy afternoon inside crafting with your kids and making these seed bombs that will be ready to plant in no time!

Simple DIY Seed Bombs

Materials:

  • Seeds – a collection of seeds of your choice – we used mostly wildflowers but added in some extra seeds as well (note: the larger seeds don’t always stay in your seed bomb easily so use smaller seeds if possible – I used some sunflower, nasturtium and sweet pea seeds that were pretty big and I had to work hard to keep them in the seed bomb)
  • Colored paper torn into pieces – 2-3 pages (I used 3 pages of paper; red, orange and pink)
  • Newspaper torn into pieces –  2-3 pages
  • Blender
  • Silicone mold – if you don’t have a mold you can also just form into balls with your hands
  • 2 cups of water
  • Mixing bowls
  • Strainer

 

Instructions:

  1. After you’ve torn up all your paper, put the pieces into the blender.

  2. Add 2 cups of water to blender and blend everything until pulverized.
     
  3. Place a strainer over a small bowl and pour the entire contents from the blender into the strainer.  Allow to sit for about 5 minutes so the water can drain out of the pulp.
     
  4. Scoop a handful of paper pulp out of the strainer and add a small spoonful of seeds to your pulp.
     
  5. Gently mix up the pulp and seeds and squeeze out any excess water over a bowl until the seed bomb is fairly compact.

  6. Press the mixture into a mold, squeezing out any excess water and draining it from the mold. Continue until you’ve used up all the pulp.

  7. Finally, using a paper towel, press down on each seed bomb to soak up any left over moisture in the seed bomb – we want to remove as much water as possible to prevent the seeds from germinating.
     
  8. Allow seed bombs to dry for 24-48 hours and then gently remove from mold.
