Garden Activities for Preschoolers – Make A Magic Seed Star

Garden Activity for Preschoolers

Have you ever wondered how to make a magic seed star? This garden activity for preschoolers is the perfect and fun way to introduce growing plants to kids! Our adventure in Garden Camp continues this week. Yesterday I highlighted the super easy DIY Planter we made in class. We are enjoying every minute of getting our hands dirty, exploring the garden and learning a ton about our earth! Here is one sweet activity we did earlier this week. Thank you Seattle Tilth and your amazing Children’s Gardening Camp for the ideas and inspiration.

Garden Activities for Preschoolers

Garden Activity Materials

  • Newspaper or Paper
  • Glue
  • Small brush
  • Seeds
  • Scissors

Garden Activity Approach

  • Cut out a few stars from the paper
  • Lay out the star, glue, brush and seeds
  • Demonstrate how to make the Magic Seed Star by dipping the brush in the glue, dotting the end of each point and gently place a seed on the dots of glue.
  • Hand the activity over to your child so he can make his own Magic Seed Star,/li>
  • Remind your child that too much glue is not good for growing
  • Find a nice sunny spot in your yard with your child
  • Dig a little hole with hands or a small shovel
  • Place the Magic Seed Star in the hole and cover with soil
  • Wait for your seeds to sprout

We planted our Magic Seed Star a few days ago with Calendula, a beautiful orange flower that taste wonderful in tea too.
