Earth Friendly Tips
- Keep the seeds that you didn't use. You can use them for another seed mosaic or for this cute Animal Bean Bags craft, feed them to the birds, or plant them in pots to discover a little more about plants.
- When it's time to dispose of your seed mosaic project, you can remove the seeds from the background and plant them in small pots. You may also ask an adult to help you cut the mosaic into smaller pieces and plant them on pots or garden plots.
