What you are looking at is a picture of a project from church, from our very talented Family Ministry lady: Ms Susan.
An empty eggshell is glued to a piece of egg carton and then decorated with crayons. Inside is potting soil and the kiddos planted a sunflower seed. The project is then taken home.
In less than a week, with daily watering and a home on a window ledge, you can see the results. I kind of think my kiddo planted more than one seed, the nut, but she is very pleased with the results!
Here is the best part: you can simply put the entire thing in the ground, as is. After all, it is all bio-degradable!
Who needs to buy “peat pots” to start their gardens? Start saving your eggshells and egg cartons – NOW is the time to start from seeds in Wisconsin. I promise, it WILL get warmer so we can plant them in the ground. Eventually.
