Grow a Cup of Green

Ireland has many fields of green grass. This year on St. Patrick's Day, you can grow some green grass of your own. Check out this activity from our What is St. Patrick's Day? book from Enslow's I Like Holidays! series.

You Will Need:
  • a small package of oat seeds (You can find these at animal feed stores and some garden centers.)
  • a small plastic or paper cup
  • potting soil
  • water
What You Do:
  1. Put about an inch of potting soil in the cup. Cover the top of the soil with oat seeds. Cover the seeds with a very thin layer of soil. Be sure not to put on too much soil. Add some water to wet the soil.
  2. Place the cup in a sunny window. Water it a little bit every day. In about five days, you will have your own cup of green grass for St. Patrick's Day.
