If you're looking for an over-easy DIY project for the kiddos over the Easter holiday, this is an eggs-ellent adventure for the little ones. Just follow these seven steps and they'll be well on their way to planting their first flower garden.
If all of your eggs are in one basket, it's time to kill two birds with one stone. (Not literally, of course!) Grab a few eggs from the fridge. One (or three!) per kid.
Now, let's get to crackin'! Crack your eggs close to the top of the pointier end so that you'll have as much shell to work with as possible. Then poke a small hole with a needle or pin at the bottom for drainage.
Compost or trash the top portion of your egg shell, pour the edible portion of your eggs into a bowl to scramble-up for breakfast, rinse the inside of the remaining shell and place back in your carton.
Bring your shells outside where you can be free to make a mess. Grab potting soil and your preferred seed. Marigolds, zinnias and sunflowers are just a few easy-to-grow flowering options but veggies and grass are fun options too!
Fill your shells with potting soil just below the cracked part of the egg.
Place in the sun. Water until soil is moist but not too damp. Monitor daily until the first signs of life appear.
Once two leaves from your seedlings appear, gently break the shell toward the bottom so that the roots can easily spread out once you place your egg in the ground to continue growing. Enjoy!
