Easter Egg-heads

Make some boiled eggs for tea, then afterwards clean out the shells and use googly stick-on eyes and felt-tip pens to create a funny face. Put a damp cotton wool ball into each egg and sprinkle with a teaspoon of cress or chive seeds. Leave in a dry, bright place and watch the ‘hair’ start to grow. Once it has got long, give each egg a ‘haircut’ so you can use the cress or herbs on your dinner.
