How about adding some cheer to your garden-related activities with some seed ornaments and decorations!?
If you've got old seeds, now is the perfect time to use them up for arts and crafts, or even a germination test activity (click here for Seed to School's germination lesson plan). You can get seeds donated from your friendly neighborhood seed companies like Fedco Seeds or Johnny's Selected Seeds, or even small regional seed companies. You might even ask the Maine School Garden Network - we might be able to help!
- Old seeds
- Templates/cookie cutters (optional, you can always freehand!)
- Optional additions: beads, beady eyes, bows, sparkles
These were made by Mary Dunn's class at the Hall School - this month's School Garden of the Month - with seeds donated from our friends at Fedco Seeds! How gorgeous are those.
