1 Care­fully re­move the tops from the eggs, leav­ing the bot­tom two-thirds of the shells in­tact. Empty the shells (save the eggs for an­other time, or use in our spaghetti nests, right), then care­fully wash them out. Dec­o­rate the shells with pens or paint, then leave them to dry.

2 Dip the cot­ton wool balls in a lit­tle wa­ter, squeez­ing off any ex­cess. Place 1 ball in­side each shell, then sprin­kle 1 tsp cress seeds onto each one. Sit the filled shells in egg cups and leave in a dry, well-lit place for a week – a win­dowsill is per­fect. Your cress will start to grow within a few days, per­fect for mak­ing egg & cress sarnies!
