Growing Grass (or seeds)

DSC00975

Great to use for G week (grow grass) or S week (seeds, soil).

  1. Let the kids decorate their cup with a face. Googly eyes always make it more fun. I like planting the seeds in clear cups so we can watch the roots growing too.
  2. Fill the cup about 2/3 full with dirt.
  3. Sprinkle grass seeds on top and covered with a little more soil.
  4. Water until moist with a squirt bottle and sit in a sunny window.
  5. Don't forget to give them a little spritz when they start looking dry.
  6. We talked about what seeds need to grow ... soil, water, sunlight.

It took about 1 week exactly to start seeing tiny sprouts, then in another week, they were getting very tall! The kids think it's fun to give them a haircut every now and then too.
