Spring is here and before you know it, Mother's day will be upon us. Today we have a great DIY that you can do with the kids for Mom or make yourself to send to someone special.
But don't forget to make a few for yourself!
Seed bombs are easy to make, they are fun great gifts, and you can make them ahead of time and store them for when you need them.

- 1 part mixed flower seeds native to your area (1 packet can make several seed bombs)
- 4 parts natural clay
- 1 part seed-starting mix or compost
- Roll out and flatten clay.
- Combine seed-starting mix or compost with the flower seeds and gently knead into the clay. Be sure to evenly mix all ingredients.
- Roll clay into a 1″ diameter tube.
- Cut or pinch off 1″ sections and roll into balls. Each seed bomb should be about the size of a small meatball.
- Place on a tray in a sunny window to harden for about 24 to 48 hours.
Wait for the recommended sowing time for your climate and toss the seed bombs into their desired location. In cold climates, sow 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. In mild climates, sow fall through early spring. The seed bombs will dissolve over time and grow into a beautiful wildflower garden!
