We were at a fair and made these. They were fun! Here are the basic instructions...

Things you will need: old stocking legs, dirt, grass seed, jar, various decorative materials like googly eyes, felt, foam, pipe cleaners, pom poms, etc.

1. Put large scoop of grass seed in toe of stocking/pantyhose (3 tablespoons or so)
2. Put about a cup or so of dirt on top of seed
3. Tie off stocking so you have a ball(trim of excess stocking but leave about 3 inches)
4. Decorate your dirt baby with face, ears at your whim - but not anything that will cover the top or bottom
5. Put dirt baby in a jar with mouth just small enough for dirt baby to rest on and the excess stocking tail should be in water (photo should clarify this direction)
6. watch the their green head of hair grow
7. You might decide your babies will need haircuts at some point and can trim them
