Great! I find wildflower seeds or summer annuals are best though such as cornflower, or love-in-the-mist, or borage as they tend to be unfussy about where they land! Good luck!

Great idea. You can also make seed tape with paper too, which can help little people sow at the right spacing etc. Lots of tutorials online. Have fun!

Not a numpty @jacq1075! Seed bombs are just a fun way to get sowing with kids (see my blog on how to) and as @MrsGemH says, they have origins in geurilla gardening where people would green up grey urban areas by throwing balls of clay impregnated with seed onto roundabouts and verges! They even tried bus-stops 😊
