Earth Day Seed Planting

Celebrate Earth Day 2010 with this fun and simple project, brought to you by HAPPYBABY. Teach your little ones to Renew, Reuse and Recycle!

HAPPYBABY Earth Day Seed Planting

What you’ll need:
-Recycled HAPPYBABY cube tray or YoBaby yogurt cups
-small screwdriver
-Seeds (dill, chives, cilantro, basil, parsley, lettuce, etc.)

1. Clean HB tray or yogurt cup.
2. Poke a hole in the bottom of each cube. A screwdriver with a small head works well.
3. Fill each cube with soil. Since the cubes are small, a teaspoon works best to fill the cubes.
4. Make a small hole in the dirt with your finger.
5. Add 3 seeds in the hole and then cover the seeds with dirt.
6. Water the seeds with a spray bottle or small watering can. Be sure not to overwater.
7. Place indoors in a sunny spot and water daily or as needed.

Once the plant begins to sprout and has a sturdy stem, you can replant in a larger pot or in your garden. Seeds will begin to sprout in approximately one week!
