It was a beautiful day here in Maryland. Hope your day was great too!
Can YOU stick out your tongue and touch your nose with it?
Meet our super cute Lion Head rabbit. He is a relatively new part of the family. Happy spring!
I love the adorable spool dolls made by Erica Daley.
Her dolls inspired me to make these cute bunnies just in time for spring.
“Thank you; I love it!”
Floppy-eared bunny: Violet.
I cut out ears, paws, and tail from a piece of felt. I used a vintage wooden spool of thread as the body. The face was hand painted on.
A violet for Violet.
This is a craft that is good for large groups of kids like school classes because the mushroom trays can be saved by the parents and the overall project will be very inexpensive. The handle for your “basket” can be made with a lot of different materials but I like the natural ones best. The photos show a basket handle made with a twisted piece of drift wood. You can grow grass seeds or wheat grass berries.
I waited too long to take these pictures: the grass is getting too tall. When we are done enjoying our grass baskets, I let my chickens enjoy the greens ! No wasting.
Note: This project is meant to be a centerpiece and is not meant to be carried around by the handle.
One more note:
I like growing wheat grass because it doesn’t take a huge amount of planning ahead. The plants will sprout in just a few days. When I grew the wheat grass in these mushroom trays, I soaked the seeds overnight and then put them on top of the potting soil, watered it, covered the tray with plastic for the first day or two and then watered only as needed. -Very easy child project.
