Grow Your Own Easter Basket Grass

Growing your own Easter basket grass is really easy, and it is a fun activity for the kids.  My girls loved watering their grass and watching it grow!  It takes a couple of weeks for the grass to fully grow, so I recommend starting this project a few weeks before Easter.

You should have enough grass for your Easter basket in a little over a week, but you can grow it longer if you prefer.  The longer it is left to grow the fuller the grass will become
