Grass Critters

For Christmas last year, one of my friends gave the kids kits for making their own grass heads. In the kit there were instructions for making a grass head, a bag of moss, a bag of grass seeds, a bag of items for decorating them, a stocking and a cup. It was such a great idea for a present. The kids were so excited when they opened it up and realised it was something they could make!

The kit for making a grass head

Jacob puts some moss in the stocking

And all decorated! An interesting looking grass head ;)

Esme puts grass seed in the top of the stocking

Esme's is decorated too. Mummy took a bit of artistic license with this one ;)

A week and a half after we made them and they have grown a decent head of hair.

The kids are now looking forward to giving their grass heads a haircut - I think we'll wait a little longer to do that though otherwise they might end up with no hair ;)

This is so fun. Thanks for sharing. My nephew made something similar at church before Christmas and the grass is still growing. It sits in the window sill and he shows it to me every time I visit. Thanks for stopping by and sharing our on line tea party. Hope to hear from you soon. :) joyce

They look so cute. And it does seem like a lovely gift idea.

How cute! We received a flower bulb for Christmas and are watching it grow...this looks like so much more fun! (stopping by from Childhood 101!)

What a great gift for your friend to put together, and so cute! Would be a great party gift (instead of a lolly bag) I am thinking too :)
