Eggshell Plant Pots

Supplies needed:
  • Eggshells
  • Potting soil
  • Grass seeds (they germinate in a few weeks) or bean seeds (they germinate in a few days)
  • Tempera paint or Markers
  • Hot glue or white glue
  • A small square of cardboard or a small piece of a pipe cleaner.
Clean eggshells and dry them gently.

To give the tiny plant pot a solid base, glue a small square of cardboard  to the bottom of the eggshell (or use a small piece of pipecleaner twisted into a circle ). If using white glue, let it set for a few hours; hot glue will set in a few minutes.

Using tempera paint or markers, decorate the eggshells. Let the paint dry.
Put potting soil in the eggshells (fill a little over half way). Add many grass seeds or two bean seeds (in case one doesn't germinate). The grass seeds take a few weeks to germinate, but bean seeds will sprout in just a few days.

Cover the seeds with a little bit of soil, and sprinkle lightly with water.

When the seeds sprout, put the tiny plant pot in a sunny spot and enjoy.
