Today craft day was taken straight from the pages of the Crafty Crow. When I saw this post a while back, I knew we had to do them for craft day. The original idea can be found here, at Mayfly. I always wanted a Chia Pet as a child, but never had one - probably more because I never asked for one than anything.
We modified ours a bit by using chive seed (I hope this works - I just didn't see the need to buy a huge bag of grass seed when I don't even have a lawn, or at least not one that is my responsibility to care for) and potting soil instead of mulch. I had some potting soil on hand, so I hope it works as well. Only time will tell - I'll have to do an update on this post.
I love to see how all of these crafts translate into our under five population. We only had a couple of "real" faces here and the rest more closely resembled a Jackson Pollock. Ned was so careful about his painting - look at how he holds that brush! And believe me when I tell you that every stroke was intentional.
I'll let you know how this one turns out - it was fun to put together. Hopefully, all of our heads will grow a bit of hair now!
