How to Make Seed Tape

Sow your seeds on paper, then when the garden and weather are ready, lay the paper strips onto the soil, cover them up and water. This project is fun and practical, because kids will love gluing seeds to paper and you'll love how seed tape takes the mess out of seed planting. The sheet of paper helps little hands line tiny seeds up in perfectly spaced rows that will grow into perfectly spaced plants.
