Make Your Own Chia Pet Head

  • 2 tablespoons grass seed
  • Nylon stocking foot
  • 1 cup potting soil
  • Plastic yogurt container
  • Water
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Permanent marker
  • Double-sided tape
  • Card stock, craft foam, and so on, for clothing

  1. Spoon the grass seed into the stocking foot, and the potting soil on top of the seed. Tie a knot in the stocking, leaving the excess fabric hanging. Fill a yogurt container halfway with water and place the stocking head on top with the nylon tail in the water to serve as a wick. Attach googly eyes to the head and draw on a mouth with permanent marker. To decorate the yogurt container, tape on clothing made from card stock or other materials.
Be sure to check the water level in the yogurt container every day, keeping it at least half full.
