#73: Make a Grass Head


Materials needed:
An old knee-high stocking (or the leg cut off an old pair of nylons)
15 mL (1 tablespoon) grass seed
750 mL (3 cups) sawdust or peat moss
Bowl
Saucer or plate
Water
Markers, white glue, goggly eyes (or buttons)

Place grass seed in the toe of the stocking. Fill the foot of the stocking with sawdust or peat moss. Add just enough to make a nice round ‘head’. Make sure you don’t mix the grass seed into the stocking too much. Tie a knot in the stocking right above the level of sawdust/peat moss. You may have to squeeze the material down to make a tight round ball.

Soak your grass head in a bowl of water until it gets wet (you'll know as it will get heavier). Once it is a bit wet, place the head on a saucer so it doesn’t drip everywhere. Once the head is dried out (about a day) you can give your grass head a face with markers. If you have wiggly eyes you can glue them on. You can also glue yarn or pipe cleaners on the face to make ears, mouth, nose, etc.

HINTS: Keep your grass head on a plate or saucer and in the sun, but don’t let him get too dry. To keep him damp, dip the top of his head (the toe of the stocking where the seeds are) in water every day. In about a week, hair (grass) should start sprouting. (Be patient!) Once it starts growing you can give him funky haircuts! Don’t forget to keep watering him!


This activity promotes creativity (and delayed gratification).

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had
    a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

    I tend not to leave a response, but I looked through a few
    remarks on this page "#73: Make a Grass Head". I do have a couple of
    questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or do a few of these remarks come across like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Sometimes it is something simple you could have done yourself, but you took it to the mechanic down the road
    and it cost you a fair amount of money. Before
    you purchase a used car, it is very important to not forget that there was an earlier
    owner so you must get information about the history of the car.
