Grass Guys

Make a Craft that really comes alive!

Craft Project Directions:
Make yourself or someone you care about a growing grass guy!

To make this craft you will need nylon stockings, potting soil, grass seed, water, waterproof, markers, a plastic cup, and glue-on google eyes. First take the nylon stocking and cut it so it is about 5 inches long including the toe section.

Fill it with some grass seed first and then add the potting soil so it becomes a ball. The ball should be fairly large- about 2 to 3 inches across. Tie a knot in the nylon stocking to hold the ball in its shape. Leave the rest of the stocking hanging below the ball- this part is important to your grass guy.

Now decorate the face of your grass guy with the markers and glue on the google eyes. Take a plastic cup next- it should be small enough that the soil ball will rest on the top of it and its tail will hang into the cup.

Decorate the outside of the cup- add shapes, colored tissue paper, pipe cleaner arms- whatever you wish to give your grass guy a body. When you are done add 2 inches of water to the bottom of the cup and put your grass guy on top of the cup.

Make sure the nylon stocking tail you left hangs into the water. Check the water level in the cup daily and watch your guy grow! Pretty soon you will be able to cut and style his hair!

Enjoy Crafting!
