Happy Easter!

Pääsiäisruoho ja tipuja. Easter grass and chicks

Trying to enjoy the wonders of Spring, we decided to grow our own Easter grass this year. There´s no sign of green outside yet (we just had snow this week!) so I thought girls would be delighted to get their own piece of green for Easter.

We usually travel to my in-laws on Easter holidays, main reason I didn’t encourage my daughters to have their own baskets at home before (they often get pretty ones from their grandmother!).

You see… it was really exciting for them to watch the grass grow from seeds to “bush”. Too bad our lack of experience resulted in irregular surfaces :P. Next time I figured we need to use more seeds (even if the package says the opposite!).

Anyways, girls acquired a new skill and had fun at same time :D.

Happy Easter!

A beautiful package right? This was made by Luonnonvoima in her pre-school. It has barley grass in. Yep, I admit, it is prettier than ours >_<!

We are off for the holidays and as you might have guessed already, we are spending the long weekend with my girls´ grandparents.

Wish you all a very Happy Easter! Hyvää Pääsiäistä! Feliz Páscoa!

  1. Lily-chan, que fofoooo!!! Isso me faz lembrar as experiências com feijão na escola! Ficava ansiosa para ver o grão germinar pouco a pouco a cada dia e imagino o mesmo excitamento das suas filhotas!
    Tenham um lindo e harmonioso feriado! Bjss

    Oh yeah, spring is springing! My kids grow grass in preschool too, it’s a nice no-fail plant to grow. I like the hardy barley (so Finnish) but I also like the wispy ones you grew at home. So sweet. Hope you all enjoy a wonderful Easter weekend up there!
