Aunt Nancy and Uncle Chris did it again! They chose a really cool project for Grace's birthday - garden cookies. Through this process we learned that making flowering cookies for your garden is an old farming tradition that originated with the Native Americans. They rolled seeds in clay to protect them from drying out in the sun, getting eaten by birds, or blowing away in the wind.
We started this simple, but messy, project this morning in the sunshine on our deck. The kit came with everything we needed. We just had to add a little water to make the clay/soil mixture.
