So our homeschooling science project this week is growing grass in our Easter baskets! Yes that's right.. it's real grass for us! None of that fake weird plastic stuff in OUR Easter baskets! ;)
The kiddos had a BLAST playing with dirt and seeds... so now we wait and see how it looks next week! The seeds have sprouted, and there is some grass growing.. so we'll see!
We started off by soaking some wheat grass seeds that we bought at Whole Foods. I soaked them overnight. The following day, we rinsed off the seeds, put some potting soil in our plastic basket inserts, and covered the top with the seeds. We mixed them into the dirt a bit, then we placed a damp paper towel over them and put saran wrap on top- to keep the seeds moist and warm while they sprouted!
I hope to be able to share a finished picture of the 4 (yes Luke was napping and didn't get to play with the dirt- darn!) baskets next week for Easter!!
