Grass craft ideas

This is a silly crafts project is great for a sunny day or to start on a rainy day when kids are itching to get outside. Start out the grass crafts by gathering your supplies which can all be easily purchased from Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc.
  • panty hose (any color / size – check if mom has an old stretched out pair or try to find cheap ones at a garage sale, womens clearance department, or the dollar store)
  • pipe cleaners (your choice of colors – yellow, white, purple, green, pink, red, blue, green, etc.)
  • google eyes (large googly eyes look the best in my opinion)
  • hot glue gun (only costs $5 and I use mine all the time)
  • sand (any type of sand to fill the panyhose)
  • quick growing grass seed (whatever you have on hand)

Cut off the leg of a pair of panty hose or stockings. Tie a knot in the end which will be the nose.

fill stocking with sand until it is the size you want

Silly crafts for kids

Fill the stocking with sand to make it as big or small as you’d like your people craft to be.It helps to have one person hold the hosiery open while another person carefully pours the sand in so that you don’t make a mess.

add grass on top of the sand

Grass head

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. Our grass seed we had on hand was blue which made it really easy to see where it had ended up.

Summer Kids Activities

Spring crafts

Thoroughly drench your silly crafts for kids with water. (If it is raining out – just stick it outside!) Now place your outdoor craft project in a sunny place outside like a patio table, club house, or indoors on a sunny window sill.

Don’t forget to water your grass heads 1-2x daily. If it is outside just water generously. If it is inside you can either dunk it in water or spritz with a water sprayer. The grass should emerge within a week.

After 5 days we had these silly grass head crafts that my kids were just crazy about! Don’t forget to keep watering your grass head every day or two to keep the grass seed growing all summer long. The longer you let it go the longer the hair will get and you can even style the grass head, give your grass figure a hair cut or trim with scissors, etc.

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!
