Getting started

Steap 1. Ask your mum or dad to only crack the top half of the eggshell when frying eggs. Rinse the bottom half and keep it somewhere safe.

Step 2: Collect as many clean eggshells as possible. Tip: give everybody eggs for lunch.

Step 3: Draw little faces on the eggshells and put them back in the egg carton.

Step 4: Fill each of the eggshells with potting compost until just below the edge.

Step 5: Sprinkle the seeds over the filled eggshells and pour a little water into them every day.
