Make and decorate tiny eggshell plant pots for Easter. Then watch your plants grow!
- Potting soil
- Grass seeds (they germinate in a few weeks) or bean seeds (they germinate in a few days)
- Tempera paint or Markers
- Hot glue or white glue
- A small square of cardboard or a small piece of a pipe cleaner.
Clean eggshells and dry them gently.
To give the tiny plant pot a solid base, glue a small square of cardboard to the bottom of the eggshell (or use a small piece of pipecleaner twisted into a circle ). If using white glue, let it set for a few hours; hot glue will set in a few minutes.
Using tempera paint or markers, decorate the eggshells. Let the paint dry.
Put potting soil in the eggshells (fill a little over half way). Add many grass seeds or two bean seeds (in case one doesn’t germinate). The grass seeds take a few weeks to germinate, but bean seeds will sprout in just a few days.
Cover the seeds with a little bit of soil, and sprinkle lightly with water. When the seeds sprout, put the tiny plant pot in a sunny spot and enjoy.
