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
-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.
-And about 7-9 days of growing time
-A spray bottle for misting the seeds
After you have selected your container, fill it with potting soil to 1/2 inch below the rim.
Sprinkle a generous amount of seeds on top of the soil
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.
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.
