    Default Dawn's weekly craft for kids :-)

    ok so this will be useless for many ... but I am often searching for crafty ideas online. So.... I thought I would try posting or sharing a new one each week. Some will be common sense or often stuff you already do, but hey I suck at creativity so thought it may help someone



    Week 1

    Alphabet Chia Pets

    not the most enviro friendly but..

    supplies
    *grass seed
    *styrofoam plate
    *potting soil
    *water


    carefull fill a styrofoam plate with potting soil. Apply grass seed in the shape of your favorite letter (or child's initial maybe ). water a little. Place in a sunny place to grow. Continue to water as needed and watch your letter appear

    It would probably work with any kind of flat surface that can get wet....maybe a plastic plate, etc? I wouldn't imagine why the type of plate would matter...ykwim

    I think I'm going to use an old baking sheet covered with tin foil, and spell out DSS whole first name...he loves growing things...he currently has a pumpkin patch (like total of 5 pumpkins) that he planted and are growing...he gets excited when we go over...first thing he says is “Can I go check on my pumpkins?“.

    Your life is a result of the choices you make, if you don't like your life it's time to start making better choices.
