♥ grass seed
♥ hamster bedding (1 bag was enough for 25 students)
♥ 2 googly eyes per kid
♥ 1 rubber band per kid
♥ 1 styrofoam bowl per kid
♥ 8 ounce plastic cups for measuring and scooping
♥ any materials you want to accessorize with (pipe cleaners, scraps of material, etc.)
*The kids need to work in pairs to help each other. One student will need to hold the stocking open while the other stuffs it with grass seed and bedding. *
9) Decorate with accessories, if you so desire. (I had first graders hot glue on “dresses” and stuff. They also like to make things out of pipe cleaners to glue on…ears, mouths, glasses, barrettes…)
This is a great book to invest in! It has lots of great ideas. I got mine on Amazon.com for just a few dollars.
I will post update pics of the Grass Heads as the grass grows. Like I said, this is just something fun and different you can have your students take home as a gift for Mom on Mother's Day. Have fun! I know your students will!
