When I was searching for Easter gifts for the kids I saw some cute grow kits. They came with grass seed, soil, and a cute little egg to plant the seeds in. When the grass grows out you can put the grass in pigtails or give it a haircut. It was really cute, but a little too expensive for my taste. So we decided to make our own using old pudding containers, organic potting soil, and grass seed.
The kids loved playing in the dirt and planting the seeds. It was really rewarding to see the little sprouts come up. With a little water every couple of days, the grass grew like crazy. Here's the finished product.
Our new little grass pet now lives in my daughter's room.
She drew the nose and mouth. Don't you love the accessories she chose?
