Meet Hairy #1 and Hairy #2
A Spring Gardening Craft for Kids!
We’ve never been much for creativity with names in our family and there are more than a few doubles, so it shouldn’t matter that these little guys have the same name! lol
Not looking so hairy???? Don’t worry they will, pretty soon they will be sporting a spiky green do, in fact, it’s already on the way!
This is a great activity for Earth Week, the environment, science, art….it’s an all arounder! lol
Spring Gardening Craft for Kids
Start with an empty, but clean baby food jar, any size
Let the kids choose craft items to make a face – we used googly eyes, sparkle glue and a pompom nose for one, a bead for the other. (pipe cleaner makes a great smile, be creative with the supplies you have!)
Anything flat and light will be able to stick with regular white glue, but heavier or hard things like that bead nose needed the help of the glue gun.
I stick the jars on a blob of playdough to hold them on their backs without rolling around until the glue has a chance to dry
Head to the garden and fill the jars up with dirt
Add a little grass seed to the top and water
Care for the little Hairy men with water and sunlight and watch their hair grow!!!
So much fun!!!
The playdough helps the jars stay put while you work.
Just wait until Hairy’s hair gets too long and then you can give him his very first hair cut with a pair of scissors and watch it grow back again!
Here’s the Hairy twins with a full head of hair and in need of cut, view their first hair cut experience right HERE
Nice hair Hairy!
