I have several projects that I need Easter grass for but instead of rushing to the store to stock up on some, I figured it would be just as easy for me to make my own.

This way I could also make the grass the same colors as my Easter eggs. That will be important for the activity I am planning to share with our preschoolers next week…

To make your own Easter grass, you will need construction paper (any color you like) and a paper shredder…

I used five sheets of each color of construction paper to make the amount of Easter grass shown below (which filled about half of a shoebox sized container)…

I borrowed the paper shredder from my husbands office. He hasn’t missed it yet:)

After you shred each color, empty the container into a basket then start the new color so the colors do not get all mixed up…

And there you have it – your very own home made Easter grass! I hope you like it!
