### Seed Bomb
These days, many people make a special bomb.
But don't worry, it doesn't explode.
It is called a seed bomb.
It is a ball made with dirt and clay.
Inside, a seed bomb has many different kinds of seeds.
For example, some seed bombs have pepper seeds and wildflower seeds.
People throw the bomb outside.
They throw it in a field or a forest.
The dirt in the ball gives the seeds food.
Soon, sprouts grow from the bomb.
This way, many different flowers and plants find new homes.
