Wildflower Seed Bombs

Wildflower Seed Bombs
Today's Crafty Corner is infusing creativity with outdoor time and we couldn't love this activity more. Camp Counselor Maggi is here to show us how to make Wildflower Seed Bombs!

Wildflower bombs are such a fun activity for any age! The best thing about them is that even if they come out a little messy or not perfect they still bloom beautiful wildflowers wherever you toss them!

My kids love making these because it is an activity where they can get a little messy, throw something, grow something and gift something all in one.

What you'll need:

  • Air dry clay
  • Potting soil
  • Native wildflowers
  • Optional Materials
    • Dried/pressed wildflowers for decorating
    • Packaging material for gifting (paper bags, twine, gift tags)


  1. Roll some clay into a ball a little smaller than a golf ball. Flatten the ball, I like to curve the edges up a bit to make it more of a bowl so it is easier to fill.
  2. Take a large pinch (about a ½ a tablespoon) of dirt and put it in your “clay bowl”.
  3. Sprinkle a large pinch (about a ½ a teaspoon) of seeds on the dirt in the “clay bowl”.
  4. Pinch the sides so the dirt and seeds are enclosed in the clay and roll into a ball.
  5. Optional Step: take a pressed/dried flower and press it into the outside of the clay ball. This is purely for decoration!
  6. Take outside and toss somewhere you’d love to see beautiful wildflowers grow!
  7. Optional step: Place in a brown paper sack to give to others to spread beautiful wildflowers in their yard. I like to hand stamp my sacks and attach a gift tag with twine.
