Happy Earth Day! If there is one positive that we can take away from this how lock down situation, it’s that the air quality is improving in many places. We have been doing our bit for Earth Day by making paper world seed bombs. The seeds we are using are ones that will attract bees and other pollinators.
Make sure you follow my activity board for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.
To make the paper world seed bombs you will need:
- Blue paper
- Green paper
- Circular cookie cutter
- Paper making frame (a splatter guard for putting over a frying pan also works)
Start by ripping up your coloured paper into two bowls; blue in one and green in the other. Cover them with water and let the sit for a bit.
Take your first bowl and empty it into your blender. Blend it together until you get a pulp. Them pour it into a sieve to get rid of the extra water then tip it back into your bowl. Repeat for the second bowl.
Place your cookie cutter onto the paper making frame and taking bits of the blue and green pulp press it into the cookie cutter to make a globe. Try to squeeze out some of the excess water before using it.
When your globe is finished gently remove the cookie cutter and sprinkle with your seeds.
Place your frame with your paper world seed bombs on in a warm place to dry. I put ours in the airing cupboard for about 48 hrs.
When they are ready bury the seed bombs in your garden, or give them as gifts to friends.
