Cha-Cha-Chias!

My latest craft with my Seniors at the YMCA
Egg Head Homemade Chia Pets

I glued Plastic Easter Eggs together with a hot glue gun… making a bottom that would sit flat… and a top for the head…

After picking the color they wanted…
We glued eyes on… and made mouths with permanent markers… some even had noses…
I try to leave a lot to their imaginations…
making it their own…

We then placed two cotton balls inside head… sprinkled with grass seed… and watered…
The eggs leak a little… so place on some sort of paper when doing this…
We had some plastic table covering… so I covered the windowsill where we placed them…
I checked them after two days and could see tiny “hairs” beginning to grow…
The following Tuesday when I returned to work the “little aliens”… which is what I called them… had grown a full head of hair (grass)… They are just adorable!… and the Seniors just loved them!
