Grass Heads

This is a fun garden project, which my friend Mirem helped us with.

Take a sock. You can put it in a cut off soda bottle or jar, and fold the top over the edge.

Drop grass seeds into the bottom.

Fill with potting soil or shredded hemp.

Tie a knot at the top. Turn over and place in the cup or jar.

Use pins and buttons to decorate.

Keep wet, until the grass starts to appear. You can give them hair cuts or just let it grow.

Not sure how to prevent the leprosy that develops over time, but my kid seem okay with it.
