2 eggs YOU’LL ALSO NEED felt-tip pens or acrylic paints 2 cotton wool balls 2 tsp cress seeds
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!
