This a great spring project! You can decorate the eggs for Easter, and once your plants grow big enough to transplant, simply place the eggshell and plant in the ground! I planted Zinnias in my eggs, but you can plant whatever you want. Follow the instructions on the back of your seed package for sowing information.
Nail, screw, corkscrew, or ice pick
Rinse and dry eggs as you use them. Continue this until you’ve eaten the entire carton.
Set up your workspace by getting your paints ready and setting out plenty of paper towel. Also get a container for water.
Painting eggs with watercolor is super easy! Simply paint and let dry. Add more water for thinner colors and less for thicker look.
Paint your eggs a variety of colors.
After the paint is completely dry, use something sharp to poke a drainage hole in the bottom of the shell.
The shell is surprisingly strong. I used a screw to make my holes and none of the egg cracked.
Make holes in all of the eggs and put them back in the egg carton.
Add soil and seeds to eggshells following the instructions on the seed package.
Find a place in your house with the right amount of sunlight for your plants. I put my eggs on the windowsill in the sunniest spot in my house.
