Grass Heads

It's springtime! Someone please tell Mother Nature that; it's been so cold here and I really just want to wear my flip flops!

To welcome Spring, we did a quick activity the other day. I have done this project before when I was teaching a unit about plants to elementary school children.


-Plastic pots (We used 6 inch pots because that's all they had left, but smaller would be ideal)

-Foam (with adhesive)

-Googly Eyes





-Grass seed

-Water (in squirt bottle)


1. Have the kids sketch out a rough design of the face onto the pot with a piece of chalk.

2. Use a pencil to draw out the designs onto the pieces of foam.

3. Cut and stick the foam to the pot.

4. Glue on Googly Eyes. (*For those of you new to my blog, you will soon learn that I'm not so great at taking the pictures of each step of a project. I usually have the end result though, so you just have to fill in the missing steps.)

5. Fill the pots with soil.

6. Add Grass Seed.

7. Water with a squirt bottle so the seeds don't wash to one area of the pot.

8. Watch the pot heads (OOOPS- you might not want to call them that in front of the little ones) grow a nice, thick head of green hair.

I'll post some pictures weekly to show the progress

I'm linking up with Heather today at Blessed Little Nest
