Spring always inspires me to go outside and create magical experiences with the kids. We decided to make a flower seed packet craft for the children to give as presents and as a way to celebrate Earth Day and Spring.

The kids had a lot of fun doing a craft project in the garden and they are very excited both to give their flower seed packet craft to the people they love and to plant some of them in their own garden.

To make your own Flower Seed Packet Craft you will need:

  • Card Stock or Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Flower Seeds
  • Potting Soil
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Sharpies

Instructions for Flower Seed Packet Craft:

  • Glue another flower on and allow to dry. Once it is dry mix some flower seeds with some potting soil and use a spoon to fill the flower pocket with seeds and soil. Glue closed.

  • Write the children’s names on the popsicle sticks and glue the names upside down onto the back of the flower.

  • We put our flower seed packet craft in our Upcycled Flower Pot to give as a beautiful gift.
  • When you are ready to plant the seeds, bury the flower seed packet upside down with the popsicle stick sticking out of the soil. That way when the flowers start to grow the children will know where their plants are.

The kids will have fun making flower seed packets and they make great gifts for just about any occasion.

  5. I love the tulip idea! Syrus and I just planted his very first tiny garden, little herbs. He got SO excited when he started to see them grow! He waters them and takes care of them everyday, I love to see the responsibility it has built in him!

    1. That is so cute that he is taking his responsibility seriously. The seedlings from our Tulip seed packet are just starting to sprout.

  7. Simple and cute, love it! I want to get my two-year-old into planting this summer. I am horrible at keeping things alive, but I want a garden in our yard so badly now that we have a house. This little project would be a good place to start!

    1. Congratulations on the house. Try choosing some easy grow seeds. The water wise packet that we used grew really easily and I am a terrible gardener, too.
