Bring Sring In

Bring spring in to your home and grow a grassapillar with your children.  Begin by mixing 3/4 cup of potting soil and 2 tablespoons of grass seed in a bowl.  Add water to moisten the mixture, then set aside.  Cut away a three cup or more section of an egg carton, then trim the section along the longer edges so that your grassapillar will look the same on both sides.  With a permanent maker or googly eyes put a face on the front of the egg carton.  Gently spoon in the seed mixture set your creation on a dish in a brightly lit spot and keep moist, grass will sprout in a week. 

Learning opportunity= Teach your child about measuring and taking responsibility for watering their grassapillar.

Extra Ideas= Let your children cut and decorate the grassapillars hair once it get long.
