Here’s a fun project to bring a little spring inside, have some fun with the kiddos and maybe even get a little nutrition. Make and Takes has instructions on how to grow your own wheatgrass, complete with suggestions about fun containers.
If you decide to try to make your own wheatgrass juice, here’s some info on how to get kids to like it (the hand cranker sounds fun!) and how much to give them.
We’ve had fun growing regular grass in eggshell halves. Let the kids draw faces on the washed egg shells and plant the grass seed to be the hair. We kept them in a sunny window sill and had fun giving them haircuts.
No matter what you do with it, it’s certainly lovely to see all that green!
