Crafty fun - Sifted flour lawn shapes. Cut out a couple of templates with Xacto knife/box cutter (stars, suns, hearts, etc) from a couple of scrap pieces of cardboard (pizza boxes work well for this). Spray grass with water inside the shape so the flour will stick, then sift some white flour in the stencils, and remove. Works on sidewalks too!
