Seed bombs! Have you seen them? What do you think? I’ve loved the idea of guerrilla gardening but for some reason I’ve never given them a try. Imagine my delight to open my box this month and see exactly that!
I was so excited! This was definitely not an activity I would delay until my children were available to join me. I went straight to play as soon as I could.
The directions were easy to follow. My air-dry clay had had a head start but I happened to have air dry clay in my pantry so that was an easy swap. Make your plate, so to speak, with the clay. Follow with soil. Top with seeds. I added bluebonnet seeds to the wildflower mix included in the kit because I’m a good Texan.
Then you fold everything together and roll out small balls.
I love the way the soil, seeds, and clay mixed so beautifully. In a poetic way I felt that each little ball was a mini world. I guess that’s true, the potential of each seed is the beginning of new life.
I can’t wait for the seed bombs to dry out! The kids and are I going to have fun tossing them around and watching for signs of growth. We won’t have to go far, I plan to start in my own yard. The rest we shall scatter around town.
The kit included air dry clay, soil, a wildflower seed mix for sun, another wildflower seed mix for shade, as well as some sunflower seeds, a terracotta pot, and some paper cards and a colouring page. I plan to plant the sunflower seeds in the little pot and gift it to a friend.
