Grow Grass Hair for Project or Pets - sprouted rye for decoration, Easter egg nest, of for catsI created this learning project for some 1st graders, but it's also a great springtime/Easter project that can benefit pets and wildlife too! We grew rye grass in plastic cups. Once grown they are pretty decorations around the house or can be offered to the family cat, or even left outside for the wildlife who may need food in this early springtime!

  15. Check in 3-5 days. You should already start seeing little seeds sprouting. You may leave the paper towel on longer, until you see many of the seeds sprouting. Then remove the paper towel and just leave the bagged pots closer to light.
