fill stocking with sand until it is the size you want

Summer Crafts for Kids

Fill the stocking with sand to make it as big as you’d like your silly grass head.

add grass on top of the sand

Lay your sand filled stocking so that the sand is laying horizontally on your surface and you can sneak in grass seed at the “top” of what will be your grass head’s head.

tie the other end of the stocking in knot and trim extra off

Tie the other end of the stocking in a knot and trim off any extra material.

See how all the grass is at the top of the grass head.

Then use your hot glue gun (carefully) and your google eyes and pipe cleaners to create your grass head faces / features.

Summer Kids Activities

Water your grass heads thoroughly so they are drenched. Now place in a sunny place; a window sill works perfectly.

Don’t forget to water your grass heads 1-2x daily and the grass should emerge within a week.

Grass Craft for Kids

After 5 days we had these silly grass head crafts that my kids were just crazy about!

HINT: We put grass down the face of the middle one so it would grow hair all over. You could try to get it to grow as just a mustache if you like. The possibilities are endless!
