If you ask me, plastic or paper Easter grass is one of the most annoying substances on the planet. Around (and after) Easter time, you’ll find it all over the house: on the floor, the furniture, in your kids’ rooms, and of course…wound around your vacuum brush roll. You might spend weeks picking this stuff up. While you might think Easter grass is a necessary evil if you have kids, it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, we’re about to rescue you from the eternal battle of fake Easter grass — by showing you how to grow your own. That’s right — real grass that stays put. Your kids will love it. And the best part? It’s a cinch to grow.
1. What You’ll Need
All you need for this fun little project is a plastic easter basket (one without holes — more like a small bucket), 2 cups of wheat grass seed, and some soil — just enough to fill the basket almost all the way. And obviously, for each basket you’ll need a complete set of the above ingredients.
