Liz Stanley at Say Yes! to Hoboken always has great ideas for fun DIY projects. I thought her Wheatgrass Eggs not only looked perfectly springlike, but simple to make as well. Which is very important these days. Have I mentioned I’m subbing at school every day this month? The fact that it’s only four hours a day doesn’t matter; it’s completely thrown me off my game. But I need to look at this as another opportunity to hone my time-management skills, right?
Anyway. Lexie and her friend Summer made Liz’s Wheatgrass Grown in Eggshells. The amazing thing about 10-year-olds is that you can let them loose with a project and they do a wonderful job. You can find all the directions—plus a photo of what the finished product will look like—here.
Liz said her sprouts appeared in 2-3 days. The girls planted their seeds last Thursday and they’re just starting to sprout 5 days later. I don’t know much about seeds and how they grow, but I wonder if the fact that our wheatgrass seeds are about five years old makes a difference. Or maybe it’s not quite warm and sunny enough on our windowsill? (It did snow over the weekend.) At any rate, the girls enjoyed the project and we’re optimistic that our seeds will sprout in time for Easter.
UPDATE: The wheatgrass grew! It worked!
