Grass Head Guys

I got this idea from Family Fun magazine. I can't stop looking at them when I walk by my kitchen window-- they are hysterical! They have grown so fast and my kids can hardly wait to give them a haircut! You can see the "hair" hasn't all grown in yet, but I couldn't stand waiting to post these cuties any longer. (edited- The picture to the left has already had a haircut only 5 days ago and has already grown back to this size! My kids are loving this grow and groom process!)

What you need:

2 tbsp grass seed
Nylon stocking foot
1 cup potting soil
Plastic yogurt container
2 googly eyes
Permanent marker
Double sided tape
Decorative paper, markers, glitter, etc for clothes.


Spoon the grass seed into the stocking foot, and the soil on top of the seed. Tie a knot in the stocking, leaving the excess fabric hanging.

Fill a yogurt container halfway with water and place stocking head on top with the nylon tail in the water to serve as a wick.

Attach googly eyes to the head and draw a mouth on with a permanent marker.

To decorate the yogurt container, tape on clothing made from paper or other materials.

**Be sure to check the water level in the yogurt container daily, keeping it at least half full.
