Fold a paper towel so it will fit into the plastic container. Make sure you have at least three layers of paper toweling. The paper towel will soak up the water so the water will not sit on the bottom of the container.
Step 3: Dirt
Fill the container with dirt so that it almost reaches the top of it. Spread the dirt evenly in the container. Now you can push down craters in the dirt using a marker or your finger. Then put your seeds into the craters and cover them with dirt.
