Grass Head Friends

I saw this idea out of my Parents or Parenting magazine, I honestly can't remember and I can't find it online either.

This craft was super easy and super fun for me and my 3 year old to do.  Brayden loved watching the *hair* grow every day.

What you will need:

  • 2 empty soup cans (or any canned good will work)
  • Different colored felt
  • Googly eyes
  • Buttons
  • Glue (I used scrapbooking glue so I think anything but regular elmers should work)
  • Soil/Dirt
  • Grass seed

We started by cutting out our shapes from the different colored felt.  Since Brayden still doesn't cut, I just asked his input on color combinations and the shapes of his can's face.

Once you have everything cut out, it's time to start gluing to your cans (like I said, this is suuuper easy!)

That's really all it takes, then you just add your dirt and grass seed and water daily to watch their *hair* grow.

Another one of Brayden's fake smiles! We need to work on this :)

It took a little over a week but our friends now have a full head of hair!! (side note - mine did have a full head of hair until Brayden knocked her over onto the floor and she lost about 3/4 of it.  I am too lazy to refill with seed so I am OK with her lack of luscious locks)
