Easter | DIY real easter grass

Holidays in general are just so much fun with kids. There are so many ways to help build the excitement during the days leading up to them. I grew up planting my own Easter grass every year and was so excited to pass the tradition down to Olive. This year we made an extra basket for the baby, I wanted her to get used to the idea that she will be sharing her holidays with someone else very soon.

DIY Easter Grass

You'll need:

-Wheat Hard Red Spring Wheat Berries, you can find them at a healthfood store or online here

-A basket, pail, terracotta planting pot or even a watering can, you can really use anything! If you choose to use a basket, you will need to line it. We used a plastic bag and just trimmed off the excess plastic so it didn't show.

-Potting soil

-And about 7-9 days of growing time

-A spray bottle for misting the seeds

Step 1

After you have selected your container, fill it with potting soil to 1/2 inch below the rim.

Step 2

Sprinkle a generous amount of seeds on top of the soil

Step 3

After you have made a nice even layer of seeds, mist very generously with spray bottle and find a bright window to place your potted seeds.

Step 4

The seeds need to be kept moist until they sprout, so mist them generously with water about 3-4 times a day! Once they have all sprouted, you can reduce the amount of watering to 1-2 times a day.
