MagicSeedStarKidsGarden 300x296 Garden Camp {How To Make A Magic Seed Star}

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.

Activity – Magic Seed Star

Materials:

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

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.

Thank you for choosing to read this post today!
