Coloring Together: Seeds We Eat


Coloring, sometimes considered a child’s activity, is a documented stress reliever for adults! In this activity, use our coloring sheet to color as a family. While you color, consider using the conversation starters to talk about the different seeds we eat.

See Lesson 

  • Coloring Sheet
  • Colored pens, pencils, or markers

 Use the Seeds We Eat coloring sheet and color it in as you please. 

  • While you color, consider discussing the seeds we eat. Use these prompts as conversation starters. 
  • What was the last seed that you ate?
  • How many types of edible seeds can you name? 
  • Consider talking about the different types of seeds we eat. As you color, see if you can think of more examples for each category.
  • Share a memory of a recipe that uses one of the seeds listed in the coloring sheet. Share your experiences eating that recipe. Encourage each other to be as descriptive as possible; can you remember where you were? What you smelled, touched, saw? 
  • Eat while you draw. Do you have any edible seeds in your house to eat? How do the seeds taste?
