Eating eggs isn’t the only fun thing to do with them – it’s easy to turn your empty eggshells into a fun egghead family.

You could either soft-boil an egg, crack off the top carefully and remove the insides (perfect time for egg and soldiers!) or alternatively simply crack the top off a raw egg if you want to use the egg for something else.

How to:

  1. Rinse out the shells thoroughly with warm water and washing up liquid before drying them fully.
  2. Get creative and doodle silly faces on them.
  3. Put a little damp kitchen towel into the bases.
  4. Scatter some cress seeds inside and keep watch for about a week while their edible locks grow!
