Grass Friends

 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.

I got inspired from Spoonful.com to make these cute little grass friends.

All you need is:

Grass seed

Soil

Stocking

Foam pieces

Google Eyes

Markers

Twist ties ( or rubber bands )

Small containers

Scissors

Hot Glue Gun

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…

Even more grass hair ; )

Over the next few days the hair will continue to grow and  your new Grass Friends will need some haircuts.
