This week #MySweetandSticky are making some super fun Seed Bombs for various reasons. For one, we’re celebrating Earth Day. For two, we’ve got a variety of Appreciation Gifts to give out including Teacher Appreciation Week. Mother’s Day is also right around the corner and if you’re celebrating Grandmas, Step-Moms and other special women in your life, this Kids DIY Project is for you! It is both Sweet and definitely Sticky! Shall we begin?

DIY Seed Bombs only require a few ingredients. They're simple, cheap and safe to use with young kids. If you're looking for a fun DIY Appreciation Gift to give Teachers or as a Mother's Day Gift, Here you go!

What you need for Seed Bombs:

The Ingredient List is pretty simple for Seed Bombs and you already have most of it at home. Tools you’ll need include:

  • Mini Muffin Tin for drying
  • Bowl for Mixing
  • Wisk for Mixing
  • Measuring Cup
  • 1/4 Cup Warm Water
  • 1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour

Ingredients you’ll need to obtain include:

Flower Seeds

You can pick these up just about anywhere in the Spring. I recommend buying annuals that like full sun. These are easy for moms to plant in a pot on a window sill after they receive their Seed Bombs Gift.

Seed Bomb Paper Kits

These are the foundation for the Seed Bombs. I have put together a few color combinations in my Etsy Shop for you to use. {If you’re in a hurry you can shred your own paper at home} The Seed Bomb Paper Kits are the perfect amount of recycled, biodegradable paper to use in your Seed Bomb. Each Kit contains 3 colors that you mix together. The amount in the Seed Bomb Paper Kits yields about 3 Seed Bombs when your project is finished. This is if you’re using the size for the Appreciation Cards. You can absolutely make smaller Seed Bombs too.

Teachers Plant Seeds that Grow Forever. My boys LOVED making these DIY Seed Bombs to give to their Teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week. This would be a great Preschool Earth Day Lesson too! DIY Seed Bombs were fun, simple and cheap, plus the boys did it all on their own. I highly recommend this Kids DIY Project Idea for Mother's Day Gifts, Teacher Appreciation Week Gifts, Gifts for Grandmas and Earth Day Craft Projects.

Appreciation Cards

Purchase and Download the 25 pages of Appreciation Cards on Etsy. Only print the pages you want to use in your Printer Settings 🙂

If you’re giving your Seed Bombs as a gift these PDF Printable Appreciation Cards are PERFECT! I have designed 25 different styles for you to download and use. You will need a Circle Punch to cut the hole for your Seed Bombs, or you can use scissors.

Now let’s make some Seed Bombs!

Now that you have all of your ingredients lined out it is time to get Sweet & Sticky. I had the boys scoop in the flour and pour the water. The order doesn’t really matter so long as the proportions remain correct so your Seed Bombs aren’t too soupy.

Break out the wisks or stirring tools and let the kids get busy stirring. You can add more flour if your substance it too runny. You want to make sure the Seed Bombs are firm and not too wet.

Reach those little hands in there and start balling up your Seed Bombs like they’re cookie dough. You want them to be about the size of a golf ball.

Roll them out of your tiny hands and into mini muffin tins to dry. They will need to dry for about ONE WEEK, so plan ahead.

If you’re gifting them right away they do not have to be 100% dry. But if you’re wrapping them up in the cellophane and gifting them with the Appreciation Cards they will mildew! So make sure you allow enough dry time.

You can also take them straight out into your garden for planting if you like!
