On my Facebook Page, I ask my readers to share their activities with us… Wendy made these FANTASTIC Grass Caterpillars with her Gardening Group (check out our smaller Grass Heads too). These make a perfect Garden Crafts for School or at home. She used the length of the leg of a pair of tights – each leg made three caterpillars… and:
“I mixed a handful of grass seed into the compost first and then stuffed it into the tights [Once stuffed, tie string for “segments”. Add some details like googly eyes and pipecleaners. Place outside and water]. The ones left inside sprouted almost over night the kids/adults were well impressed! I love the different textures of the grass delicate, then spiky and then long and shaggy. The kids loved giving them a hair cut and giving there caterpillars names. Have fun we did!”
Decorate with googly eyes and pipecleaners
Thank you Wendy for sharing this AMAZING!!
