I have two "tools" for seedlings of all kinds.
Ist is the bottle top waterer - a tiny watering rose (available cheaply in packs of 2 or 3 from the garden centre). You fit in on the top of a plastic bottle filled with water and it then gives a delicate spray either to souil or new seedlings.
2nd is the seedtray base with no holes in - water into that and then stand the seed tray in it to absorb water. The beauty of this is that new roots are drawn down into the soil to weather the dampness is.
BUT as others have already said the greatest danger to seeds/seedlings is too much water so make sure the soil is barely damp or you'll have problems.
good luck - I'm sure you'll have a garden full of colour in the coming year.
