Easter Baskets


Outside
Originally uploaded by pwinn.
We started our living Easter baskets today. We lined the baskets with saran wrap, filled them with dirt, sprinkled wheat grass seeds, covered with dirt and watered. In a week, the basket will be lined with grass if all goes well.

We also put up our first ever load of laundry to dry on our clothesline. I think it needs to be a little higher though. I had to prop the middle up with a garden spade so the clothes wouldn't touch the grass. :0)

It is hard to believe Easter is only 2 weeks away. We are taking next week off from school and I will post our craft and activity plans soon.

Awesome concept. Plastic Easter grass is of the devil.

I love this idea! Maybe I'll try it with my grands....
