Carefully remove the tops from the
eggs, leaving the bottom two-thirds of
the shells intact. Empty the shells (save the eggs for another time), then carefully
wash them out. Decorate the shells with
pens or paint, then leave them to dry.
Dip the cotton wool balls in a little
water, squeezing off any excess.
Place 1 ball inside each shell, then
sprinkle 1 tsp cress seeds onto each
one. Sit the filled shells in eggcups and
leave in a dry, well-lit place for a week
– a windowsill is perfect. Your cress will
start to grow within a few days, perfect
for making egg & cress sarnies!
