How to make egg heads

You will need:

  • Egg shells (cut in half)
  • Cotton wool or paper towel
  • Seeds such as Cress, Wheatgrass, Microgreens or Sprouts
  • Marker or textas to decorate your egg. Or add googly eyes for a 3D look!

How to make:

  1. Carefully cut or break 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.
  3. Sprinkle some seeds on top.
  4. Place somewhere warm and light, and check daily if the seeds need watering.
  5. Cut your seedlings with scissors when about 5cm tall. Use them to make a tasty sandwich!
