We prepare the work in advance. We have a bowl of potting soil, wheat grass seeds (purchased at Whole Foods), a little pitcher of water, egg containers and a small flag with each child's name.
Two scoops of dirt in each egg cup, put the seeds ON TOP (very important for wheat grass) and then water.
Put flags in.
Each day the children watered the plants, it is important to soak until they sprout which is in about 3 days.
By day 5, grass is growing!
