Green Thumbs and Green Hair

Posted by: Rhonda April 22, 2014

Earth Day is a great opportunity to teach children more about sustainability, nature, and what it means to “be green.” This fun project demonstrates those values by using recycled materials and planting seeds. Plus, the funky hair is hard to beat! Good for Earth Day, or any day.

Our three-year-olds introduced me to their grass creatures by name. The teacher documented the project. It starts with a window sill and an old sock, and by the end, you’re cutting hair—green hair!
