Sprouted Wheat and Grass Heads
I had been wanting to try sprouted/soaked wheat in baking for a long time. When I saw this tutorial on Delia Creates for sprouting wheat, I decided to give it a try. We grew wheat grass last year around Easter time, but I watered it a bit too much and along with the grass, we grew mold. Eww. Needless to say, it didn't last long and wasn't the cute spring decor that I was hoping for! But I gave it another try and we had great results this year!
First I used the barely sprouted wheat berries to make several loaves of this DELICIOUS bread. One of my favorites.
Then we left the rest to grow and fully sprout to make lots and lots of grass for bright decor like this...
And fun grass heads like these!
These were inspired from another activity on Delia Creates. The kids had a great time creating them.
We simply decorated the cans by hot gluing felt pieces on them. Then filled the can with a half of a folded up paper plate (to take up some space) and added a square of wheat grass on the top!
These little grass heads have been all over the place. Kaylee especially enjoys carrying hers all around the house. Hers and Aaron's were chatting during breakfast.
They were super fun to make, so we'll definitely be doing these again!
