Make and take crafts for green thumbs big and small!

Crafting Flower Crowns: Create your own wearable flower crown using recycled materials and a little bit of sparkle. Become forest royalty and let your unique spirit shine.

Make Seed Paper: Seed paper is homemade paper that grows! Make your own paper pulp, shape it, and add wildflower seeds. When it dries, give it as a gift or write a secret note on it that will grow when planted.

Create Wildflower Seed Bombs:

Growing a patch of colorful native wildflowers not only adds beauty and charm to a space, but they also provide a critical habitat for pollinators and beneficial insects and wildlife, which is important for ecosystem function and pollination. Get your hands dirty to make these mini gardens which, after they dry, can be stored or tossed into a hard to reach area for summer-long flowers.

Design your own seed packets: Give the gift of seeds! Share the wonder of wildflowers with someone you love by personalizing and designing your own seed packets.

All materials provided.
