April Showers Bring May Eggheads?


For the May make we will be bringing a little of the great outdoors inside by making cress seed eggheads.

This little project is one that will really grow with your child (cheesy pun intended). Over a period of a few days our little egghead people will begin to sprout “hair” which you and your child will eventually be able to trim off and eat! Then, after enjoying a peppery tasting salad or egg sandwich, you can use your (now hollow) egg head and start over again!

PROJECT DETAILS:
Where and When: We will meet in the church Primary room at 10am on Thursday, May 14th (see calendar below).
Moo-la: The fee for this make will be $3 per child, which you can bring with you.
RSVP: On or before Tuesday the 12th of May so I can have the supplies ready for you (leave a comment on this post or email me—see sidebar).
ALSO: The $3 fee will allow each child to make at least one eggheads. However, if you bring your own pre-hollowed eggshells, you are welcome to make as many cress seed eggheads as you can fill (while supplies last) at no additional fee.

  3. Hey, we'll be there. If I wanted to bring my own egg shell, do I literally just save like the halves of an egg that I've used? Is it lame that I can't figure it out? Lol.

  4. Farrah-sorry i wasn't very descriptive with that part. The way I did it was crack open the very top of the egg (the pointy side) with a spoon—i just rotated the egg as I carefully cracked it all the way around. Then I dumped the egg straight into a frying pan for breakfast. If you have some boiled eggs you could just cut the top off with a sharp knife but then you would have to carefully scoop the egg out with a spoon...seems risky to me but supposedly it works! Hope this helps.

  5. Natalia! You are so creative! I am always so jealous, I wish we could come! My kids have school from 8:15 to 11:45 everyday! WE are not putting them in for the summer, so I am looking forward to coming! Thanks! Amber Carlson
