Supplies Needed:

  • Colored Craft Paper
  • Letter "K" Cutout
  • Elmer's Glue
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors 
  • Marker
  • Toilet Paper Roll
  • Yellow Circle Stickers
  • Small Seeds/Spices (We Used Flax Seed)


Set Up:


I cut out our "K" ahead of time. We stared by smashing a toilet paper roll flat and cutting it into small circle strips, then unflattening it so we had little brown circles. We then glued our brown circles to our "K" and put a circle of glue stick glue inside each circle.  As soon as we had a little bit of glue inside one of the toilet paper roll circles we put down a yellow sticker in the middle of it then did a pinch of seeds on top of it (so that our seeds would stick to the area around the sticker yet inside of the brown circle). We let it dry, then carefully shook our loose seeds into the sink before gluing our K to the craft paper.

We finished by eating a kiwi together and talking about different kinds of seeds and why fruits and vegetables have seeds in them.  This would also have been a great opportunity to plant something and grown it our window, but I didn't think about that until after the fact.
