We like Little Home on the Hill's homemade Chia pet so much! Plants always make for such great gifts — especially those that have funny, silly faces and grow hair.
And though Little Home on the Hill chose to use watercress seeds for their sprouting hair, we think it'd also be neat to include an edible herb such as chives (mohawk!), thyme or oregano. Overall, a fun, unique idea for a teacher who absolutely loves all things that sprout.
