G is for...Grass Head Family

Cristi from Through the Calm and Through the Storm and Meg from Adventures with Jude are hosting this great weekly party called Blogging Through the Alphabet. All are welcome to join in, just make sure to keep your posts family-friendly. I am determined to stay faithful this time around. I might not always post on the same day of the week, but I have every intention to post something each week.

Here is how I decided my "theme" for this round of Blogging Through the Alphabet. As I was going through old blog posts recently, I noticed I have some neat ideas for activities and crafts that I did with in the past. Unfortunately, I always included them in my weekly wrap up posts or more recently in Poppins Book Nook posts, so they sort of got buried. I can't really share them as individual activities or create pinnable images to promote them and share my ideas, which is why I started this blog in the first place (to share my ideas with others who work with children). So, I am going to make new posts for these ideas.

I have found there is a huge benefit in this strategy. I am remembering  ideas that I had forgotten, which means I can now do these activities with the younger children. I will be sharing the old pictures and possibly sharing new pictures of the younger children participating.

Several years ago, during our letter G week, the girls got to make Grass Head Families.

G is for. . . Grass Head Family

I cleaned out egg shells and the children got to turn them into a little family. They drew faces on the shells.

Then we added potting soil and grass seed. 

About a week later, the Grass Heads had quite a decent amount of hair.

  1. What an adorable growing activity for the winter months. I like the fact that the grass will grow quickly enough to satisfy impatient little ones.
