The Tiny Seed

The Tiny Seed, by Eric Carle

Craft: See what tiny seeds will grow!
Supplies: cup, dirt, grass seed, 2 googly-eyes, pom-pom, short pipe cleaner, glue. Want to pick up a craft kit? Call us and we will supply everything except the dirt and glue.

Instructions: Decorate your cup first with a face using the eyes, pom-pom, and pipe cleaner. You may want to let the glue dry before filling the cup about 2/3 full with dirt. Sprinkle the grass seed on top and dampen with water (not too much!) Place it somewhere where the seeds get some light, water it a bit every other day or so, and watch its “hair” grow.
