Grow a Herbie!
This is a fun idea – it may get you into gardening and growing all sorts of plants.
What you will need: - Some herb seeds (parsley, chives or mint) - An old nylon stocking with the toe intact - Permanent markers - Sawdust - A jar
Step 1: Put the seeds into the toe of the stocking - spread them out if you can.
Step 2: Add the sawdust to the stocking ensuring that the seeds stay between the sawdust and the stocking. Add enough sawdust to make the size Herbie you want.
Step 3: Tie a knot in the leg of the stocking as close to the base of your Herbie as you can. Trim the end of the stocking so that you have about 5 cm hanging. Step 4: Use the permanent markers to draw a face and decorate on your Herbie.
Step 5: Soak your Herbie in water until the sawdust is saturated.
Step 6: Fill the jar with water and sit Herbie on the top – make sure that Herbies tail is in the water. Step 7: Put Herbie in a sunny spot and watch his hair grow. Make sure the tail is always in the water. When Mum needs some fresh herbs you can give Herbie a trim!
