Your kids will love to watch them grow and so will you! : )
Making grass friends is so simple to make and as their hair gets long your children can give them hair cuts.
Your child will see how grass grows in your own home or in their classroom.
All you need is:
Twist ties ( or rubber bands )
Hot Glue Gun
We were inspired to do this craft after seeing this on Spoonful.com and we were so sad when the site was no longer available for inspiration.
First, you want to cut your stocking…
as if you were to cut at the knee and have from the knee down to the toe insert ( shown below )
Now, fill the toe area with grass seed and the rest of the stocking with soil and twist tightly ( shown below)
Next, tie with a twist tie ( shown below )
Next step is to decorate your Grass Friends ( I made a cat on the left and a person on the right )
Put into containers on a windowsill or anywhere else near sunlight and water daily!
After 2 days your little Grass Friends should start to grow some hair…
And after 4 days…
Even more grass hair ; )
Over the next few days the hair will continue to grow and your new Grass Friends will need some haircuts.
