The seed collage is a beautiful piece of artwork that uses recycled seeds from fruits and vegetables. Teach your kids about the beauty of fall with this collage craft.
What You'll Need:
- Dry seeds (from fruits, vegetables, or plants)
- Paper plates
- Construction paper
- Craft glue markers (optional)
Step 1: Gather seeds from melons, squash, pumpkins, and other fruit. Look for different colors.
Step 2: Wash the seeds. Spread the seeds out on a paper plate and place it in a sunny window. They should be dry in a few days. Once the seeds are dry, use them to create a collage.
Step 3: Apply lines of glue to a piece of construction paper. Sprinkle the seeds over the glue. Let the glue dry. Shake off the excess seeds.
Step 4: Continue gluing and adding seeds to your collage. Try sprinkling white pumpkin seeds with black watermelon seeds to create a contrasting design. You can also use markers to make part of the picture, and then add the seeds to fill it in.
