Seeds for thought
When we think of Easter, we think of CHOCOLATE! But a new idea is blossoming.
We all fall into the trap of buying masses of over-priced (but tasty) chocolate treats for our loved-ones at Easter but this year let’s get creative and make some simple but sentimental presents that say SPRINGTIME!
Home-made gifts don’t have to take forever to make or cost huge amounts either, plus they will invariably last a lot longer than chocolate.
A fantastic Spring inspired and unique gift that people will love is a Sunflower Seed Parcel.
• All you need is one bag of sunflower seeds, available at any garden centre or nursery. (The sunflower is a lovely choice as it can be sown in April and will bloom in the Summer but feel free to choose a different flower)
Now for the creative bit!
• Find some decorative or colourful material to create your parcel
(TIP: You may want to put the seeds in a small bag first, a sandwich bag will work perfectly just so your seeds cannot escape).
• Wrap the material around the bag and then tie it closed with some ribbon or string.
And there you have it, a simple but thoughtful Easter gift that people will be able to enjoy all summer!
