Activity: Seed Necklaces

This fun activity allows students to create seed necklaces.  Students can observe the growth of their seeds as they begin to sprout. 

  • Small re-sealable plastic bag (ex: small jewelry bag, found in craft stores)
  • Yarn
  • Cotton Balls
  • Water in spray bottle.
  • Spray bottle
  • Seeds or Beans
  • Scissors
  • Single hole punch
  • Permanent marker
  1. Punch a hole in the top of each plastic bag.
  2. Using the permanent marker, write the student's name on the plastic bag.
  3. Wet the cotton ball using the spray bottle.
  4. Place the cotton ball in the plastic bag.
  5. Place the seed/bean in the bag so that it is resting against the cotton ball.
  6. String the yarn through the hole in the plastic bag to create a necklace.
  7. Moisten the cotton ball as needed.  The seeds should begin to sprout within a week, depending on the type of seed used.
