Fun With Grass Seeds And Sponges

Sponge House

Can you say best science project ever? Now you can. This DIY is simple, fun, educational, and the best thing ever. I found this little gem of a house, covered in grass, and made of sponges over at and I am in love! I’m beyond excited to feature it here today. This craft will help start kids learning about biology and nature. It might even help get their green thumbs sprouting. The earlier the better!

Sponges are porous and make the perfect growing surface. They soak up water and have all the little nooks and crannies needed for seeds to take root. With this experiment kids will be able to see the whole growing process. You will need four brightly colored kitchen sponges, ruler, marker, scissors, tupperware, spray bottle, and most importantly, grass seeds. Fast growing seeds will make you little ones the happiest. It’s like a Chia Pet! Only not because it’s a house.

Here’s a similar experiment from Measured In Moments. Bean sprouts! Find it here.
