Seed Bombs


This week the girls and I made seed bombs from Whip Up's latest Action Pack. The mini-mag is full of crafts to do with kids based around a theme. April focused on seeds, which was perfect for us. Many of the projects are more suited to kids older than mine, but they're so neatly organized and thematic, I think they'll be easy to file away for later.  We all enjoyed this one though.  What preschooler doesn't love tearing, throwing, and goopy mush?  I liked talking to my girls about seeds and flowers, especially since we've been collecting and identifying wildflowers lately. 






My friend Kat made seed bombs recently as a part of an Urban Land Scouts workshop, and had some beautiful thoughts on it.  When things slow down around here, I definitely want to become a land scout, too!

But you can ALREADY become a scout by sending Katie documentation of the seed bombs! I say: do it. You can earn the other badges later, but won't it be good to have this one to start?

Oh, I thought you had to do them in order? I've got so much going on now, I thought summer would be a better time for me.

Oh, no! You can do them in any order whatsoever!

This is so exciting and your photos so lovely. You all are clearly already Land Scouts. Right on. Send me a mailing address and I will mail you some patches.

This is such a fun idea. My kids would love getting messy with this project! Thanks for sharing it. (And thanks for stopping by the Vintage Kiddo Collective, too!)

I think I have a shirt with the same pattern as the one June is wearing. I need to see her so we can take our picture together. You can come to Raleigh.
