As a stepparent in my late 20s, I’ve never thought of myself as particularly ancient. When I presented the idea of making DIY chia pets with my family, I was quickly set straight. Despite the fact that they still sell classic Chia Pets in most big-box stores, my 8-year-old had never heard of such a thing.
I worked quickly to right that wrong. As a kid, I remembered getting a kit to make two of my own. My dear buddies, Bob and Bobra, were my beloved confidantes throughout a childhood summer. Sure, they were just pantyhose with seeds in them, but once I gave them faces and their hair grew in, I quickly grew attached.
My family was definitely skeptical about the project, but they went along with it anyway. This one is a lot of fun because you can get really creative. While I used pipe cleaners and googly eyes, you can use plenty of other craft supplies to bring these beauties to life. You can also use any fast-growing grass seed. This is a fun project with quick results that will definitely entertain kids of all ages.
