Cress egg heads
Ask an adult to help you find or buy these things:
You will need:
wholemeal bread (to make the sandwich)
TAKE CARE – Some steps need adult help.
Ready to make them?
Using the back of a butter knife, crack an egg into a bowl by giving it a firm tap close to the top of the egg!
Carefully separate the two parts of the shell and ask an adult to give the larger part a good wash.
Rest the eggshell in the base of your egg box or in an egg cup, then do the same with some more eggshells.
Leave in a warm, light place and sprinkle with drops of water every day - the cress should start to sprout in two days.
Now you can use it to make a cress and boiled egg sandwich!
