This fun and decorative craft
can be a family project that
everyone can enjoy making and
looking at.

  • Potting soil
  • Wheat grass seed
  • Spanish moss (optional)
  • Smooth unpolished stones
  • Weatherproof and nontoxic paint markers
  • Crafts glue
  • Plastic eyes


1. Add a drainage hole to the container if it does not already have one. Fill with potting soil. Plant grass seed about 1/8-inch deep, and then water. Place container in sunlight, watering every two days. Grass should be ready in 5-7 days.

2. Draw butterfly, bunny, flower, carrot, or other designs on the stones with markers. Let the paint dry completely.
