Next, you will tie the hose at the bottom of your head. To make the ears and nose, just grab some dirt in the hose, pull it out and then place a small scrunchie there to keep it in place. Glue on your eyes and that is all! Make sure to water your head everyday so that the hair will grow. This is about two weeks worth of growth. The hose holds water pretty well. In the beginning, I just watered the heads twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. You can keep it in a small plastic bowl to avoid getting dirt, or water in unwanted places. There is no need to place them in a sunny place, our seeds did fine just by keeping them on the counter with only the lights from inside the house.
The children enjoyed making these and seeing the hair grow. It is a great way to make science fun and let them get their first taste of growing something on their own.
