What you need
- Egg carton
- Potting soil
- Grass seed
- Spray bottle (optional)
What to do
- Crack each egg, very carefully, really close to the top of the shell, all the way around the shell. (Crack it close to the top so that you have a deep cavity in which you can plant your seeds.) Break off the top portion of the shell and pour the egg white and yolk into a bowl. You can make baked goods or an omelet with the egg.
- Rinse out the eggshells and set them in the egg carton.
- Head outside or cover your work area with newspaper so that you don’t make a mess with the potting soil.
- Spoon a generous amount of potting soil into a cup. Sprinkle in some water and stir gently. Continue adding more water, stirring until soil is very moist.
- Carefully spoon the wet potting soil into each eggshell until almost filled. Leave just a little room at the top.
- Cover the surface of the soil with grass seed.
- Spoon potting soil on top of the grass seed, spreading out gently to cover the seeds.
- Water every couple of days using a spray bottle or sprinkling with a little water onto the soil with a spoon. Your seeds should begin to sprout in about a week. You can give your grass “haircuts” as it grows!
