DIY Fun With Grass Seeds And Sponges


If you are looking for fun homemade projects for your kids, this next one might be a great choice. It is a little grass house that can be made at home without big costs and materials from your household. To build the house you will be using kitchen sponge and plant the grass seed in these. Let your children create the design of the house and plant the seeds together. Then explain to them that in order for the grass to grow, they will have to be patient, as this can take around three weeks to happen. Make sure you use a spray water when watering the grass seeds and add some fertilizer into the mixture. Ask your kids to water the seeds regularly, teaching them to be responsible and patient in order to see the results. This is such a fun project for kids and the outcome is truly lovely!


What you’ll need:

  • 4 new standard kitchen sponges (approximately 4 1/2 by 3 inches) in orange, green, blue, and pink
  • Ruler
  • Permanent marker
  • Scissors with a pointed tip
  • Large plastic food-storage container (a clean rotisserie chicken container works well too)
  • Spray bottle
  • 1/2 cup of grass seed, preferably one labeled “fast-growing”
  • Sewing pins (optional)

    I love the idea of this project, but I’m having some difficulty understanding the instructions. It says to cut the shapes out according to the picture, but the picture with the measurements is blurry. I can’t tell what the width measurement is suppose to be. Is their someplace I could find a better picture or the measurements?
