Insects thrive on wild flowers, so, by creating these seed bombs, you’re not only keeping the kids creative, you’re helping out your local wildlife too!
All you need is: household flour, compost and wildflower seeds. You can gather your own seeds, by scouting around the garden!
Follow the steps below and show us how you get on by adding your iDot to the website:
- Use a ratio of one cup of flour to 3 cups of compost and combined it well before adding our seed.
- Once you’ve added your seed, try to handle it gently so not to damage any of them!
- Add just enough water so that the mixture holds together.
- Then form your little seed bombs, making them about the size of a marble.
- Leave to dry out for 24 hours.
Once your seed bombs have dried out, take a walk around your garden and scatter them around. If you don’t have a garden, you can scatter them in a few pots and place them on your windowsill!
