SUPPLIES: Sturdy plastic cup, small colored construction paper, permanent markers, grass seed, potting soil, spoons, water, scissors, clear plastic mailing tape.
SET UP: Cut a strip of construction paper to fit around the plastic cup. Set out markers, soil, spoons, seed and water. Set out the paper strip and the mailing tape.

SET UP: Place the paper strip on the cup with tape. Place the clear plastic mailing tape completely around the cup, face, and paper strip to protect them from water.
