Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

Grass Head Buddy

Who doesn't know these amazing buddies? With a big head, googly eyes, green spiky hair, they will go bald if we don’t water them.

On thing is certain, this buddies are so simple and low cost that make a fantastic way to make our restless minds happy and occupied for a days.

Build this grass head guy takes up 45min, all depends on what kind of adornments you use on it. On the other hand, it takes 4 or 5 months to become bald; it will depend on the water/sun/love you give it.

What we need:

  • silk sock, short
  • 2 tablespoons of grass seeds
  • potting soil,
  • 1 yogurt cut,
  • water,
  • 2 eyes, can be buttons, pushpins, "googly eyes", etc.,
  • permanent marker,
  • double sided adhesive tape,
  • colored paper, or other material to make clothing,
  • scissors.
How to:
  • Fill the silk sock with the seeds and the potting soil;
  • Place the grass seed into the half and fill the rest of the half with the land;
  • Tie the sock with a knot so that the land within it forms a ball;
  • Don't cut the remaining tissue;
  • Place the eyes, and draw the mouth on the buddy, knot must face down;
  • Attach the nose and ears; paint the freckles, and/or anything else you like;
  • Fill the cup halfway with water;
Place the grass buddy on the top of it, so the rest of the fabric touch the water inside the cup, that way the liquid will "climb" and reach the seeds;

Note: keep the cup with water; check the water level on daily basis.
Et Voilá

Dont let him die!
