Get Creative: Egg Cress Heads

Tuesday 9th August 2016


1. The egg shells can be halved and kept intact one of two ways – either boil eggs and cut them in half, scooping out the egg, or crack an unboiled egg and remove the egg leaving two halves.

2. Allow the children to draw faces on their egg shell.

3. Glue on the wiggly eyes.

4. Fill the egg shell 2/3 with cotton wool.

5. Sprinkle the seeds over the cotton wool.

6. Set these in the egg carton and water them regularly…watch your seeds grow!

If using the second option for halving the egg shell please wash the shell to stop contamination of raw food.
