Little Gardeners - Cress Eggheads

Overview

Create an 'Egg Head' by sowing the cress seeds into eggshells, paint faces and watch the hair grow.

How To Grow

  1. Carefully cut off the top of an egg, empty and clean the shell.
  2. Draw a face on the eggshell. Stuff a bit of damp cotton wool or kitchen paper towel inside. Sprinkle some seeds on top.
  3. Place somewhere warm and light, and check daily if the seeds need watering.
  4. Cut the cress with scissors when about 5cm tall. Use them to make a tasty sandwich!
