Hudson and I planted grass seed the other day and I never took pictures when we started, but now that the grass is growing I thought I would post some. He gets so excited each morning when he sees how much is has grown, it's really cute! The seed took 3-4 days to start sprouting, but once it started it has not stopped! We used cat grass seed, but you could choose any kind you find. Rye grass seed also grows really fast, about 3-5 days. Here is what you'll need:
- Grass seed
- Empty baby food jar
- Potting soil
Have your child fill the jar with potting soil and following the directions for whichever grass seed you're planting, place the seeds in the soil. Place some more soil over top. Water the seeds and place in the sunlight, by a window. Watch and wait for it to grow!
It was fun to have it planted in the glass jar, because Hudson was able to see all of the roots from the grass growing throughout the soil.
