I thought a fun, kid-friendly activity for Earth Day would be plantable greeting cards. Here is how it works:
3) Mix colors or use a single color. Put in your blender or food processor with water (don’t burn up the motor!) Blend to a pulp. Sprinkle in flower seeds of your choice. (I found mine 11 packets for 99 cents at Menards.)
6) Use a piece of construction paper to make your greeting card and attach your seeded shape. Finish decorating! Don’t forget to leave a note explaining that the card should be planted. Wildflowers will be popping up in no time!
This would also be a fun idea for Mother’s day or any other reason to give a card. I recently sent one to a friend who had a loss in the family; I thought the flowers might bring some happiness and anything handmade is always special.
Enjoy and let me know if you try this!
