Spots and Ladybugs, LLC launch new Easter Grass-Kit™ for Springtime Family Fun Activity

When two best friends decided to join forces to create simple yet fun family-friendly activity kits in 2009, they would never have dreamed how popular their creations would become.

Alison Zajac and Ailis Martin conceptualized packaging some of their family-fun projects for retail when they noticed how many other parents commented on the unique crafts and hobbies that the two moms did with the neighborhood children.

“We would bring our children to the beach when they were little, and make plaster molds of their feet in the sand,” Alison commented, “It never failed that other parents would come up and ask if they could join us and do the same. That’s how Sandy Feet, our first kit, came to be. We realized if we could make these hobbies easier for parents to do with their own kids, they would be more likely to get their family to participate in these activities. Family activities are not only fun and educational, but they create priceless memories that last forever.”

This Easter season Spots and Ladybugs introduces the original Easter Grass-kit™, where kids can grow real grass in their Easter baskets, creating beautiful springtime decorations, wonderful memories, and leaving a fresh treat for a certain hungry bunny on Easter morning, not unlike leaving milk and cookies out for Santa! This earth-friendly alternative to wasteful plastic “grass” also provides children an educational experience as they track the seed growth daily, watching it sprout into lush green blades growing to clipping length in only 7 short days.

Each Easter Grass-kit™ contains a starter disk and grass seeds; all that’s needed is a basket and a few simple kitchen supplies. Just place the starter disk in a bowl and cover it with three cups of water. The disk will expand into fine dirt, which is then placed in a lined Easter basket. Sprinkle the seeds on top and watch as the beautiful springtime grass grows. The planting process takes less than ten minutes, but the memories will last a lifetime. The kit is simple to use and the results are a fresh and lovely springtime basket of fresh green grass.

Each Easter Grass-kit™ contains enough materials for two standard sized Easter baskets. The kit is pack¬aged in an adorable cotton keepsake bag which can be re-purposed after using the contents. The Easter Grass-kit™ is available at fine on-line retailers like and For a complete list of retailers selling Spots and Ladybugs’ products, visit and navigate to the “Where to Buy” tab.
