Easy Easter Grass DIY...Easy and Fun | Plus KSL TV & a Giveaway!

{Time to Grow}
If you plant those grass seeds now you'll have plenty of grass for Easter!

Talk about a fun DIY to do with your kids, grandkids, or even by yourself. ;)  We all get a bit restless waiting for Spring so this will help pass the time and give us all something to look forward to!

Catch me on KSL Ch5 (NBC affiliate) in Salt Lake tomorrow at noon for these ideas plus some more planting options!

(Note: Pictures were taken from my previous Easter Grass Post.) 



Here's what you'll need:

You may also want to grab a little helper--I LOVE my little helper & he LOVES helping.:)

We added a little bit of water to the potting soil to prepare it for the seeds. However, don't add too much or it will turn to mud and the seeds may not make it (ask me how I know):).

I have to admit, I'm not a "green thumb", but I figured that grass grows all over the place without any help--what do I have to lose?:)

You can pick up some grass seed anywhere garden supplies are sold.

Just put some seeds in each of your "planters":
Don't worry about covering the seeds with dirt if you don't want to--they do fine just like this!



Now pick a sunny spot for them to grow...a kitchen window works wonderfully.



Patience is surely a virtue. But don't worry, you won't have to wait too long. {10-14 days or even sooner if you got the quick growing grass!}

And in the mean time, relax & enjoy a some Cadbury eggs.  Mmmmmmmm.


And before you know it--you'll love what you see! These little sprouts came up after only 4 days! You go little guys!




And in 2 weeks we had grass growing all over the place!



This was the fastest, and most detailed mowing job Bob has ever done! {hee, hee}



OOh, looks great! Now what?

I like spring so I can open some of my windows. Best is when I go to bed, the birds start singing at 4 but that is okay.

My favorite thing about spring is actually the grass - there is something so peaceful about laying in the lush, green grass and watching the clouds!
