Cress contains vitamins A and C to help you fight off coughs and colds, and it tastes great in a boiled egg sandwich!
To grow a Jurassic cress jungle you will need:
kitchen roll or tissue
small pebbles or shells
small toy dinosaurs or animals
Put a piece of black card over the seeds.
Leave your seeds for a few days, but make sure you water them often enough to keep the tissue damp.
Soon the cress seeds will look like this.
Now take the card away.
Keep adding a few drops of water to the sprouts each day.
After about two more days the cress will be taller.
Add some pebbles and small toy dinosaurs or animals to finish your Jurassic jungle.
Snip off some stalks to put in a sandwich!
