Little Gardeners - Cress Eggheads
Create an 'Egg Head' by sowing the cress seeds into eggshells, paint faces and watch the hair grow.
How To Grow
- Carefully cut off the top of an egg, empty and clean the shell.
- Draw a face on the eggshell. Stuff a bit of damp cotton wool or kitchen paper towel inside. Sprinkle some seeds on top.
- Place somewhere warm and light, and check daily if the seeds need watering.
- Cut the cress with scissors when about 5cm tall. Use them to make a tasty sandwich!
