Growing Hair Leprechaun

Growing Hair Leprechaun

Creating your own Growing Hair Leprechaun is a great way to keep the kids occupied in the run up to St.Patricks Day

You will need:

A Styrofoam cup

Potting Soil

Seeds for a quick growing green plant, cress is a good one or grass seeds.

Crayons or paint


Draw a face for your Leprechaun onto the cup.

Half fill the cup with the soil. Add your seeds and cover with a small amount of soil.

Place on a windowsill and water.

Depending on how quick your seeds grow your Leprechaun will soon have great green hair.

Have fun with this activity and we recommend adult supervision always.
