Nature Explorers: Kids Naturally Story & Activity Hour
"Let's Explore Books About ...."
Floaters, Ploppers, Droppers and Bombs
Have some fun while making Monona a more environmentally-friendly place by learning a little about the importance of native plants and how they spread their seed.
Native plant seeds are disbursed in numerous ways. Participate in a short, fun quiz guessing which plant seeds are floaters, droppers, ploppers, hitchhikers and more.
Then get messy, creating exploding balls of native seeds that can beautify a sunny spot in your yard, roadside, or a vacant lot and create a haven for birds, butterflies, and other pollinators come summer. Native seeds will be provided.
Take the seed bomb recipe home and make more.

Why? “If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder… he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.” – Rachel Carson, The Sense of Wonder
