This is such a fun activity to do with your family. I learned about it at my son’s preschool and knew that I had to post it here for you all to enjoy. Make sure to do it a week or two before Easter so you can have enough time for your grass to start growing! Hope you have as much fun doing this as we did.

How to Grow Easter Grass With Wheat – Instructions
The wheat should have teeny tiny sprouts. Aren’t they cute?
Step 2: Line your Easter basket(s) with saran wrap.
Step 3: Fill the basket with soil
Step 4: Soak the soil with water, get it nice and wet
The kids think this part is really fun 🙂
Step 5: Spoon a thick layer of wheat onto of the soil. Mist with a little more water.
Doesn’t that look so nice?
Step 6: Wrap the basket(s) in plastic or a ziplock bag. Try to make it airtight.
Look how cute our baskets (and kids) are before the plastic.
Step 7: Set in a warm place and leave the plastic on until most of the seeds have started to sprout grass. Remove plastic and mist daily if it looks dry.
Step 8: Enjoy a nice thick blanket of REAL Easter grass in a few weeks!
Don’t forget to try to have at least one accident along the way. It makes life exciting 😉
HAVE FUN and HAPPY EASTER!!!
