Leprechaun Hair Using Wheatgrass

This post from my archives is getting a lot of hits this week so I thought I’d share it again. Grow your own leprechaun hair! Aren’t they cute?!


Take a milk carton (or other disposable carton) and fill with moist dirt. Add wheatgrass 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.
