Be an egghead, recycle the empty eggshells after breakfast!
If you’re looking for a creative indoor activity you can do with your kids, may we suggest these cracking cress heads? Growing cress in an empty eggshell is not only great fun, it’s educational, too. The kids will enjoy decorating their eggshells and watching the cress grow, and you’ll have the result in just 10 days (you see, cress is really fast-growing). In short, a perfect indoor activity – with the added bonus of plenty of egg and cress sandwiches to enjoy!
By the way, have you ever wondered why crafting is such a splendid idea? Read this article and learn about the biggest benefits of DIY.
Growing your own cress doesn’t require much of you. All you need is cress seeds, cotton wool, water and a windowsill. And if you add creativity, you and the kids can turn a rainy afternoon into a fun indoor cress party. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Hard boil the number of eggs that you wish to make into cress egg heads, adding one or two extras, just to be on the safe side. Let the eggs cool down completely.
Now, carefully remove the top of the eggshell with a knife. When breaking your eggs try to crack them near the narrower top of the egg so that you end up with a decent amount of the eggshell left to do your planting in. Carefully empty the egg from the eggshell.
Step 2: Time to get creative, get the kids! Empty your drawers and collect all your pens and markers, ribbons, glitter glues and whatever else you have lying around. Everything you can use to decorate your egghead.
(Psst, if need some fresh craft supplies, check out our hobby assortment.)When you’ve decorated the egg heads, place them in the empty egg box and leave them to dry.
Once the eggshells are dry it’s time to move on to the next step.
Wet the cotton wool and squeeze out all the excess water. Now, carefully place it inside the eggshells. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cress seeds on top of the cotton balls or pads and sprinkle with water.
Place your egg box with the eggs in it on a windowsill and wait for the cress to start growing. Remember to water the seeds regularly. Make a fun daily habit out of checking how much the seeds have grown. When the cress is approx. 5 cm high, cut it with a pair of scissors and use it for a delicious egg sandwich or as garnish on top of an omelette.
