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
- Glue (I used scrapbooking glue so I think anything but regular elmers should work)
- 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.

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)
