We have you covered…
GROWING GRASS HEADS IN A CUP
- Plastic cups
- Soil or dirt from your yard
- Grass seeds
- Construction paper
- Hot glue/hot glue gun
STEP 1. Fill the cups about 3/4 way with soil.
STEP 2. Sprinkle enough seeds on top to cover the soil (do not cover the seeds with more soil).
STEP 3. Place in a sunny window inside your house.
STEP 4. Water the grass seed cups morning and night.
STEP 5. The seeds will take about 7-10 days to start growing.
STEP 6. Once you have long grass, you can cut out a nose, mouth and eyes from the colored construction paper.
STEP 7. Glue the nose, mouth and eyes onto the front of the cups and the grass will act as hair.
STEP 8. For fun… Once the grass is overgrown, give them a “haircut”.
