I had my niece and nephew over yesterday and made eggs for all five kids for breakfast. We had a lot of shells that I thought could be reused. Plus, the Easter Bunny brought us all seeds to plant and I just so happened to have some seed starter in my garage.
We labeled each egg with a Sharpie as each kid planted his/her seeds, so there would be no confusion. It was a messy project and if it hadn't been raining miserably, this would have been an outdoor craft.
Apparently the kids didn't mind the mess:) I should also note that I cleaned out each egg with hot water in the morning and let them dry before we started. When it's time, we will plant the seedling in the garden, egg and all!
While we did recycle the yogurt cups these seed starter cups are a little less eco-friendly but I think a lot more fun. I used colored Duct tape in hot pink and tye die and I used Fancy That decorative packing tape, all purchased at Joann's. I envisioned the top cup with the feathers looking like a tulip. Yeah, I was never much of a visionary but I still think it is pretty cool and the kids agreed.
Have fun with your spring planting !
