Easy Baby

Karen, this one is for you!  Here is a shot of Sophie's *dirt baby* that she made at the Cows~N~Corn field trip.  Quite the head of hair, eh?  We're trying to decide whether to leave it in the purple cup or plant it with some flowers.  Sophie is considering giving her a haircut.  I had no idea how quickly and well this little project would take off.  I encourage everyone to fill up a nylon with grass seed and soil!  Give it eyes and a mouth!  Give it food and water!  This is the easiest baby ever :)

This is so cute!

You have a little 'green fingered' girl in the family Jennie :o)

I like the purple cup -kinda punky together :D

Happy weekend my dear!

Oh, thank you! I just love this and want one or two!

Has Sophie named her? Do you have something it could sit on top of instead of down inside the cup?? That way water could still run off it and into a small container and you could see the face. I'd hate to change it too much since it's doing so well.

Thanks so much for the update and way to go Sophie!!

To be honest, the face on this one is nothing to write home about. The stickers that they gave for the eyes fell off before we got it home. Once it gets wet, too, the stickers are toast. If I did this again, I'd actually sew buttons on for eyes. It would make a super cute display that way.
