Sundays are always the best days for little adventures and unique outings and we do our best to fill them with just that.
The Spotty Dog just so happens to carry a variety of fantastic books as well as a nice selection of beer and wine!
A little Cider on a Sunday never hurt anyone!
“This Book Was a Tree offers the opportunity to become reacquainted with the Earth—to look at the world with fresh eyes. The book issues a call for a new era of pioneers—not leathery, backwoods deerskin-wearing salt pork and hominy pioneers, but strong-minded, clever, crafty, mudpie-making, fort-building individuals committed to examining the natural world and deciphering nature’s perplexing puzzles.”
Marcie prepped by breaking up a few paper egg crates into a large bucket with water. Using a immersion blender she blended the mixture until it reached a somewhat mushy/watery substance.
The table was filled with eager little ones who couldn’t wait to get their hands in the mushy wet mixture!
But first, we had to add in the wildflower mix!!
Creating these little “seed-bombs” was very simple and fun! We took some of the mixture with our hands and gradually squeezed the water out while forming a small ball.
Once they are rolled into a ball shape you can set them in a bowl and let them dry out.
After they are completely dry, keep them in the sun with a little water so the seeds can start to sprout.
Once you see the seeds sprouting the “bombs” will be ready to drop!
Marcie recommends digging a little hole for the bombs made of paper so the flowers have a chance to grow.
They can also be made from soil which can just be tossed into you desired area!
We had such a great time making these seed bombs and were so happy to meet such a wonderful and inspiring author!!
