We’re going to grow leprechuan hair this week! Take a milk carton (or other disposable carton) and fill with moist dirt. Add grass seed on top. Color a leprechaun template and glue on. Wait for a couple of days and see the hair grow!! The kids love to give their leprechauns a haircut!
This is also fun to do for real Easter grass!
Hint: Be sure to poke holes in the bottom of your container for water drainage.
