Growing Easter basket grass is a really fun & educational Easter activity for kids.
My girls loved watering their grass and watching it grow, and they were so excited to set their Easter baskets out for the Easter bunny when the time came.

It takes a couple of weeks to grow your own Easter grass, so I do recommend starting this project a few weeks before Easter.  My girls really had so much fun with this!  Are you ready to give it a try?

  • Press the seeds into the dirt, and then fill the saucer with more dirt.

  • Place your plant saucer in a sunny window, and water it daily.  You should begin seeing sprouts in 3-5 days.

  • Once the grass sprouts it grows really quickly!  This is what our Easter grass looked like after one week.

You should have enough Easter grass for your Easter basket in 2-3 weeks, but you can grow it longer if you prefer.  The longer it is left to grow the fuller the grass will become.
