What you'll need for your Cress Egg Heads

  • Empty egg shell halves
  • Colourful felt pens
  • Cotton wool
  • Cress seeds
  • An empty egg box or container for the eggs to sit on
  • Stick-on wobbly eyes (optional)
 

How to make Cress Egg Heads


1. Wash out the egg shells and sit them in the egg box or container to keep them steady.

2. Draw some crazy faces onto the egg shells and add the wobbly eyes if you have them.

3. Put some cotton wool inside the egg shells and dampen with water.

4. Sprinkle the cress seeds all over the cotton wool . A good coverage will give you a full head of hair once the cress seeds have grown.

5. Put the Cress Egg Heads on a windowsill and wait for the hair to sprout. It’ll only take a couple of days.

6. Add a tiny drop of water if the cotton wool dries out.
 

Tips:

  • When you break the eggs, try to break off just a small piece at the top so that you have a good size egg shell left to work with.
 
  • If you don’t have an egg carton or suitable container you can always use a piece of cotton wool to keep the eggs upright.
 
  • If you don’t have cress seeds, you could always use grass seeds and give your Egg Head a different hair style!
