The sowing of very tiny seeds can be difficult. The good news is that there is an easy fix – a homemade seed shaker.
Empty salt or pepper shaker (or any container with small holes in the lid)
Paper and coloured pens
Cut a strip of paper big enough to fit around the shaker. Decorate the paper with coloured pens (this could be a fun activity for the kids). Spread glue onto the back of the paper and roll the container onto this sticky side, attaching the paper to the shaker. Secure the two ends and leave to dry. Once dry, add a handful of fine sand and the contents of the seed packet to the container. Shake to mix. The fine s sand makes the sowing of tiny seeds easier, with an even s sowing pattern.
