We’re having a different kind of fun in the kitchen today, but it’s all food related! We’re beginning our gardening over spring break using eggs as our seed starters.
Start with hollowed (or blown) eggs and gently crack the top off.
Using craft markers (NOT washable), begin to create your egg-heads by adding faces of all kinds.
Using seed starter potting mix, fill the egg heads with the soil. I have found that it’s best to pour the dirt into disposable bowls and use small plastic spoons for this process with children.
We planted basil & oregano yesterday and named our egg heads. The basil side of our tray were dubbed the ‘Basil Buddies’ and the oregano side of our tray was named ‘The Over Joyed Oregano’s’! And now, we’re watering daily, providing sunlight at the kitchen window and patiently waiting for our egg-heads to sprout their hair in about 10 days!
Other than Gardening: Before we tried our hand at any gardening, I used to make these with my son’s and plant grass seed for them to sprout hair. So, if you aren’t ready to start a garden, there’s always an alternative.
