When I was little I loved growing cress on the windowsill, it’s super easy and quick, perfect for the little ones with short attention spans.
What you need –
Cotton Wool or cotton pad
Give the egg a firm tap close to the top, with the back of the butter knife, empty the egg into the bowl.
Give the larger of the two shell parts a good clean inside.
STEP 3Draw a face on the outside of the shell with the felt tips.
Wet a piece of kitchen paper and screw it up inside the shell.
Take a thin piece of cotton wool or cotton wool pad, wet it and place it as flat as you can on top of the kitchen paper.
STEP 6Scatter a layer of cress seeds on top of the cotton wool, the sprinkle some water on top.
Pop the finished Cress Head in an empty egg box or in an egg cup, repeat steps 1-7 as many times as you like.
Place in a warm, light position and water every day. You should start to see sprouts in two days.
STEP 9In about a week the cress will be about 5cm tall time to snip some off with scissors and eat it.
There you have it, it really is very simple. I hope you enjoy growing and eating your own cress.
