This Green School project is so simple and it provides exciting results in about a week. G4 loved watching their grasshead sprout hair and keep growing. When it’s really long, they can trim it like a barber.
The children used plastic cups and planted grass seeds in compost in order to grow their Grass Heads. They added some odd facial features to finish them off!
