Grow Your Own Easter Basket Grass

Growing Easter basket grass is a really fun & educational project for kids.  My girls loved watering their grass and watching it grow, and they were so excited to set their baskets out for the Easter bunny on Easter's eve!

It takes a couple of weeks for the grass to fully grow, 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?

Materials
Note:  You want to make sure you use fast growing grass seed.  It can be purchased at Home Depot, Walmart, or online here and here.  Plastic plant saucers can also be purchased online here and here.

Method
  • Fill your plant saucer about halfway with potting soil

  • 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 grass looked like after one week

Rosie and Jewel loved watering the grass everyday, and they really enjoyed watching it grow

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
