Make Wildflower Seed Bombs for your garden

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!

Reuse egg shells to plant seeds

I created little planters for my pepper seeds, using old egg shells and the egg box to hold them in.

It’s super easy and a great idea to do with the kids.

  1. Wash out the old egg shells
  2. Place them in the egg box
  3. Fill each one with compost (this can be from your garden or an old potted plant you have around the house)
  4. Make a small well in the centre of each one
  5. Place 1-2 seeds inside and cover back up with the soil
  6. Give them a little water
  7. Place on to your windowsill
  8. Now, watch them grow!

Become a phenologist!

Keep a nature diary of when you see the first birds, flowers and animals. Weekends are the perfect time to get the kids out in the garden and record what nature they see, so why not try creating your own diary?
