Welcome back to Kids Get Crafty – this week we have our very special Grass Heads – Bill & Ben the Flowerpot men…. we made the grass heads about 3 weeks ago now.. and have been watching the hair grow and chop chop chopping it and trim trim trimming it off. Red Ted LOVES them! He was a bit skeptical at first (he saw my old tights in dismay), but soon was rather pleased with out DIY Grass Head creations. They are a perfect craft for Spring, but you can make throughout Spring and Summer – maybe a nice project to help keep Summer boredom at bay? Also… we have since got a post on some fabulous Grass Caterpillars. They are so so so fun! Similarly you may also enjoy these cute Wellie Planters!! A fun way to upcycle much loved old wellies!

Grass Heads – Materials required:

  • Old tights/ stockings
  • Some compost or earth
  • Grass seads
  • Rubber band or thread
  • for decorating – googly eyes, felt
  • A pot for your grass head to sit in!Grass Heads for Kids - these Grass Heads are so so easy to make and super fun to watch grow and care for. A great art come science activity for kids. Teaching them about looking after plants too! How to Make Grass Heads!

How to make  your Grass Heads:

1) Put 2-3 generous table spoons full of grass seeds at the bottom of your tights. I held the tights open. Red Ted scooped! Pip Squeak ran off with one of the tights and wasn’t to be seen again. She had her own world play time with them!

2) Then add a lot of earth until you have a nice sized ball. Tie the bottom of the tights. Shape into a ball if necessary. (PS see – both my hands – Red Ted (4) took the photo!)

3) Pinch a “nose”, twist it and wrap and tie in place with cotton. This was quite fiddly, but we got there in the end.

4) Glue on googly eyes and mouth with PVA.

5) Place in a yoghurt pot or similar – we had a paintedflower pot (with no holes). Add water and the tights will “soak the water up” into the earth. If you want to speed it up, you can give the head  a quick shower under the tap to moisten the earth the first time round. After that take care not make it too wet. Place in a sunny spot!

6) Wait for hair to grow. Make sure you don’t keep the head too wet – we did at first, which meant that the mouth fell off and that the googly of didn’t dry properly for ages. It also means your grass head can get mouldy. So your head should feel moist but not soggy. Basically just add a little water to the pot every so often.
