Default Grow a sock

I did this with my kiddies when they were younger and it worked really well

What you need
Willing child with socks on, and some small shoes (not wellies)
Zipper plasic wallet
Spare pair of socks

Get the child to walk through some long grass with wild flowers and different grasses
The seeds will catch on the socks
When finished running and playing, take the socks off and place into the zipper wallet and child can wear the clean socks.

When home damp the sock and close the zipper up

Leave in a warm area and watch the sock sprout lovely wild flowers and grass

I'd like to see the finished craft.
I cannot master what I have not tried.

I read this thread a couple days ago and had never seen this idea. Then, yesterday at Lowe's, in the garden center, I saw a display that had something like this for growing plants in a sock. I probably wouldn't have noticed it if it hadn't been for this thread.
