Practice visual arts, explore nature and strengthen fine motor skills with this Seed Mosaic Craft. Don’t forget to add it to your next gardening preschool theme!
Our new theme is gardening and this week’s topics were all about Planting Gardens. We learned about Soil, Seed, Sun & Water, Roots, and of course Worm. The little guy and baby girl love the process art activities each week and this Seed Mosaic Craft was obviously no exception!
Seeds can be used to grow more of the plants they came from. Seeds carry the food that helps the new plant begin to grow. Seeds come in different shapes and sizes. Seeds need water, soil, light, and warmth to grow.
I’m not sure what it is about this month’s theme, but the kiddos are having a blast and we’ve been super busy experimenting with gardening in real life. We explored growing grass, planting tomatoes, and so much more!

We wrapped up our homeschool year last month, which means having lots of extra time to dive into the summer thematic studies. After all, little kids learn best through play and these monthly curriculum kits are absolutely perfect for that!
Seed Mosaic Craft
What you’ll need
- Inspiration Photo
- Seed Mixture
Here’s how to do it
- Set out the Inspiration Photo and additional supplies.
- What do you see in the photo?
- Which seed in the mixture is your favorite?
- What else do you want to add to your art?
- Where will you hang your mosaic?
- Did the child describe what she liked or didn’t like as she created?
- What else did she talk about as she created?
When we get our kit in the mail, I grab the Teacher Guides, check out the book lists, and then pull what’s relevant from our homeschool library. It really is that quick and easy!
This particular activity was a favorite of baby girl’s. She loves little things. Beads, marbles, and seeds are her jam and you know what? Making seed art is perfect for strengthening fine motor skills, which are definitely important as we move into the new homeschool year.
