  • To make a nose and ears we pinched a bit of dirt into a ball in the desired places and then secured it with an elastic band.

Growing Your Grass Head

  • Once kids are done decorating their grass head pet you will want to allow the glue to dry.  We used hot glue, but other glue varieties might also work.
  • Once dry, carefully saturate the grass head under running water, and then place it into a cup in a sunny window.

  • Be sure to place the access stocking string into the cup so that it can absorb water for the grass head.
  • Observe your grass head over the next several days.
  • Add water to the cups as needed.
  • Sprinkle water on top of the grass head to help keep it saturated if it happens to become dry.
  • Just be sure not to over-saturate the seed, as that could produce mold.
What to expect:
  • We checked on our grass heads daily, recording any noticeable changes.
  • After just a few days we began to see grass hairs taking sprout!
