How cute are these little turkey planters?  They make me smile every time I see them.  Rosie and Jewel both love them, too!  They have delighted in checking their gobblers each morning to see how much their feathers have grown.

Making these adorable little turkeys is pretty easy, too!

To make Growing Gobblers you will need:

Method
Start by hallowing out a few egg shells.  This is very easy.  All you have to do is take a butter knife and tap the top of an egg just hard enough to crack the surface.  Then use your fingers to break away the desired amount of shell.  I wanted the growing grass to look like feathers, so I broke the shells according to that plan.

Empty the inside of the egg into a bowl.  I saved our shells as I made breakfast one morning.  Once the shells are emptied rinse them with hot water and antibacterial soap.  Once dry kids can decorate the front of the egg(s) to look like a turkey.

Once the glue is dry kids can add a little soil and wheat grass seeds to their turkeys.  Top the seeds with more soil, and then water the gobbler.  Place the gobblers in a sunny window if possible.  Then wait...

Wheat grass grows so FAST, making it the perfect seed for fun kids activities like this one.  We ordered our grass seeds online here.

Rosie and Jewel loved this activity so much that we made another fun turkey plant.  Stay tuned to see how they turned out.
