Grass is all around us. So why not celebrate it with these great summery grass crafts?

These would be perfect activities to tie in with the book In the Tall Tall Grass.
I used two types of green paper and made loads of scissor cuts to resemble grass. This would be great scissor practice for older kids! I kept all the pieces that I cut out as individual blades of grass. I glued all the paper grass to a length of card, building them up in layers.
I glued a few pieces of magnetic tape to the back of the card so that it could stick to a magnetic surface (presentation board, dishwasher, fridge etc).
Then I hid various farm animals behind the grass for F to find and identify. Safari animals would also be great for this.
Another day I hid some magnetic fabric alphabet letters behind the grass using the vertical surface of the dishwasher. The grass made from construction paper held up to this much better – the thinner paper rolled down.
But we also used the letters and grass on the magnetic board with the grass the other way up.
While we were in a grass mood – we also made this Grass and Leaf Collage!
On a walk to the park we collected some grass and leaves. Back at home we made a lovely fresh green collage using Contact paper.
These activities were part of our Green Crafts and Activities week.
