Grass Hair and more!

This is a great time of year to teach children how plants grow.
Talk about what plants need to grow and create a fun plant creation with hair that your child can actually cut!
You will need:
Containers (pots, cups) Soil, grass seed
Craft materials (such as wiggly eyes, paint, markers) to decorate a face on the front of containers

Talk about how the children can grow grass "hair."
Decorate your pots and give them names.
Next, prepare to plant by scooping soil into containers (count the scoops!) and adding grass seed (cover with a light layer of soil). Water (mist) and place near a window.
Children will learn: How to care for something
To observe, measure, and chart the growth of seed to grass
Count how many days it takes to grow the grass hair.
Your child can develop their fine motor skills by cutting the grass hair (this would be a good opportunity to discuss not cutting their own hair or their friends)
