Seed Mosaic Heart

Firstly create a template so children can draw around it on a piece of cardboard (an old cardboard box is perfect).

Children then cut out the cardboard shape with scissors, and use a hole punch to make a hole at the top.

An assortment of colourful seeds (beans, peas, rice, lentils etc.) can be glued on with PVA glue to make a pattern.

This is a great use for seeds which are past their use-by date, or weevil infected.  Once dry, a piece of string or ribbon can be tied through the hole so the heart can be hung.

This is a fun, inexpensive, nature craft activity for a whole class.  Try it!
