Our little garden buddies.- An easy Spring time craft.

We recently took a trip to the library, and created these fun little garden buddies. -This was a nice addition to our Botany unit study. 
We had such a fun time! This was super simple, and very easy to create.

Materials needed: 

-Seeds (We used grass seeds). 
-pipe cleaners
-googly eyes
-Plastic cup 
Those of course are optional, but it just makes it more fun! 

Start with taking some soil, and filling up your stalking. - You'll want to add just a little soil.
Next take some seeds, and place them in. Take the remaining soil and fill your stalking up. Make sure to cover the seeds.

Make sure it starts to form a round ball. 

Once formed into a round ball, tie off the end of the stalking. I cut any excess material that was left.  This is when you can place it into your plastic cup. (You could even use a pot for this).

Now you can start decorating it. - Have fun, and be creative!

Place it in a sunny spot, and give it water. - You'll love watching your little garden buddy grow. My daughter loves it, and it is perfect for spring.
