Inkblot Hearts


Eggshell Heads

This is a fun activity for watching seeds sprout and grow!

Alttag here

• Eggshells (split in half)
• Potting soil
• Alfalfa, radish or wheat grass seeds (available in bulk in natural food grocery
  stores)
• Tempera paint or markers
• Hot glue or white glue
• Small squares of cardboard or short sections of toilet paper tubes

1. Crack eggs unevenly in half, so that you have one larger eggshell and one smaller eggshell. Reserve the contents for cooking.

2. Glue a small square of cardboard or toilet paper tube to the bottom of the larger eggshell piece using hot glue which will set in a few minutes. (If using whiteglue, leave it overnight).

3. Using tempera paint or markers, have your child decorate the outside of the eggshells. Make faces if your child is ready to draw faces. Let the paint dry.

4. Fill eggshells half way with potting soil. Cover the dirt with a full layer of seeds. Cover the seeds with soil so the eggshell is about three-quarters full.

5. Water with 2-3 tablespoons of water, then sprinkle or spray lightly with water everyday.
