- Film Container
- Cotton Balls
- Flower or Vegetable Seeds
- Screw Eye Hook
This works great with the clear containers. Put two-four cotton balls into the container. Tuck in about a few seeds between the cotton balls and the outside of the container, so that you can see them. Large seeds work best such as peas and beans. Add a few drops of water, just until cotton balls are damp, but not soaked and not enough to puddle water on bottom of container.
Use a screw-eye with a medium size eye on it and screw it through the center of the lid. Put the lid on the container tightly. Braid three pieces of yarn long enough to go around the child's neck and slip over the head. Thread yarn through the screw eye and tie in a circle.
Kids like to wear these necklaces and watch the seeds sprout and grow inside the container. If you time this right, you can plant them into starter pots when they get too big for the container, or outside into the garden.
