Cut off the bottom of a large potato and stand it on
a plate. Make a face in the potato by carving out two eyes, a nose,
and a mouth. Scoop out a hole in the top of the potato and place
two wet cotton balls in it. Let your child sprinkle grass seed on
the cotton balls. Keep the seeds moist by spraying water on them
every day. Have your child check her Potato-Head Leprechaun often
to see if its green "hair" is growing. Once the hair has
grown several inches long, let your child use scissors to trim it.
Variation: Instead of planting the seeds inside a potato, let your
child draw a face on a plain paper cup. Fill the cup with dirt and
sprinkle on grass seed.
