Make spring time fun with Grass Seed People!
Spring and Summer are such fun times to enjoy nature and plants. A fun way to teach kids about growing plants and taking care of them are these adorable grass seed people! They’re super easy to make, super easy to store, and are fun for kids of any age!
Fill your plastic cups with soil. Pack it fairly well, since dry soil takes up more space in the cup than the wet soil will. Take a small handful of grass seed and sprinkle it liberally over the top of the soil. There’s no need to put additional soil on top of the seed, since grass seed is suposed to just be sprinkled on top.
Once the seed is on the soil, water it again. Leave the cups in a sunny place, like a window, to grow over the next couple of weeks. Water the cups every couple of days. Soon you will see you grass start to grow, and it will get very tall! The more grass seed you put in your cup, the thicker you grass seed person’s hair will be!
Once the grass has reached your desired height, you can let your kids cut it, style it with color or ribbons, and more! You can also add googly eyes with a hot glue gun or glue dots, and a mouth and nose with a permanent marker. This will give your grass seed people a funny personality! I suggest decorating the cups before the grass grows, if kids are doing them. If adults are helping, you can decorate after. Just use your better judgement when deciding when to decorate!
