Silly Grass Craft for Kids
- panty hose (any color / size)
- pipe cleaners (various colors)
- google eyes (large)
- hot glue gun (only costs $5 and I use mine all the time)
- quick growing grass seed
Summer Bucket List Ideas
Cut off the leg of a pair of panty hose or stockings. Tie a knot in the end which will be the nose.
Summer Crafts for Kids
Fill the stocking with sand to make it as big as you’d like your silly 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.
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.
Summer Kids Activities
Then use your hot glue gun (carefully) and your google eyes and pipe cleaners to create your grass head faces / features.
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.
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!
