Steps

  1. 1
    The first step is to shred all of your papers, obviously if you have a paper shredder this step is a lot easier, but, this was something that my son had a lot of fun helping me do.

    Just rip off all of your paper and get it into small pieces when you're finished give it a good mix and put it right into your blender.

    Then we're going to take our 2 cups of water and dump it in over the paper, you want to completely cover the paper, so if it doesn't, you can always add a little bit more water.
    Use hot water.

    And now you let it sit for 10 minutes.
    After the 10 minutes are up, turn on your blender and mix your paper into a paper pulp.

    Then add one to 2 teaspoons of seeds, you don't want to add too many seeds or they won't grow as well.
    Give it a good mix! The smaller seeds form into the mold better, so try and find a mix that has mostly small seeds.

    Once you have the water out it's time to form in your seed bombs.
    So we're going to take little balls and push them into this silicone mold. If you don't have a mold you can actually just make them into balls in your hand too. That works well too. You can also use just newspaper or colored paper. There are a lot of different variations.

    Once you have the mold full, take a sponge and you want to make sure that all the water is pressed out of your little seed bombs.

    Finally, you let it dry overnight, once they're dry, pop them out of the mold and Tada!
