What you’ll need:
-eggshell with top 1/4 broken off*
-empty toilet paper roll
-cotton balls (about 2)
-paint and paintbrushes
-sprout seeds of your choice (alfalfa works best)
Step 1 – Rinse out your egg shell, dry it completely.
Step 2 – With paint and paintbrushes, paint on your egg shell and let it dry.
Step 3- Draw a face or whatever else you’d like over top with the markers once the paint has dried. Wait until marker ink has dried.
Step 4- Cut the toilet paper roll to fit inside the egg. You might have to cut it lengthwise to curl it tighter to fit.
Step 5- Wet a couple cotton balls and place inside the toilet paper tube at the bottom of the egg shell.
Step 6- Lay your sprout seeds on top of the wetted cotton balls.
When watering your eggshell, mist it lightly with a mister instead of putting water into it to avoid ruining your creation.
*I’ve been trying to determine the best way to break it properly. If anyone has any idea, let me know 🙂
Have fun! Take pictures if you do this, I’d love to see your results!

Hi Lisa,I would try tapping the top of the egg gently and hope it just cracks enough to peel a small section away.This sounds like a fantastic project. We’ll give it a go over the Easter break and I’ll let you know how it goes!Cheers, Jane 🙂
