Wheat Grass for Kids

Bella loves to cut.  I think that's a common feeling among preschoolers.  This craft is something that allows her to indulge her passion for cutting in a way that doesn't destroy things that I would rather not have destroyed.

We grew some wheat grass and added a face around the container. Then we let it grow until we felt it was high time this dude had a haircut.

Then I let Bella go to town.

It took a lot of concentration and determination. 

Snip, snip, snip!

Almost done!

Ah, much better!
I asked Bella to smile for me and this is what I got...

Also this...

How long did it take the grass to grow? I'm thinking about growing some for a golf party! Your little one is so cute! Would love for you to drop by the Tuesday To Do party and share this!

My daughter is close to Bella's age and she too went to town giving the grass a hair cut! Best part of the whole project! It is strangely satisfying, isn't it? Thanks for the link! That was so nice!

Jami-it only takes about a week to get it to a good cutting height. It grows back really quickly too.
