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.

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 😉
