This is a really great and educational little project to do with kids. It's very easy and safe to do and they can see the results of their 'hard work' day by day. And it takes only 4 to 5 days before they can eat their homegrown sprouts.

It's a great thing to do on childrens parties too. The kids will have a great time and something great to take home.

So it's a great way for them to discover something about plants and it's healthy too!

Step 1: What do you need?

You need very little for this project:
  • Eggs
  • Some papertowel or cotton wool
  • Cress seeds
  • A black markerpen
When you work with kids, it migth be a good idea to boil the egg(s) in advance, so they have time to cool down. Also make sure to have some spare ones.
That deserves a vote :)<br><br>Y.
