Grow a plant in an eggshell!
Have you ever seen Egglings? They are possibly the most adorable things ever! I used to give them as housewarming gifts (I stocked up) but I have run out of my stash! Basically they consist of a porcelain "egg" with a flat bottom (with a drainage gauze) filled with soil. You crack the egg open as though you were going to eat it, sprinkle the seeds on and water from the bottom using the terracotta saucer. They work like a charm.
It's now getting close to Easter and I had though of doing this as a DIY, but typically I am running late! I figured I didn't quite have enough time to grow something from seed and have more than a few sprouts on the big day. So here's my cheaty method!
a nice egg (and someone to eat it!)
a small plant or some seeds - herbs or flowers are nice.
Of course, if you were more organized than me, you could plant some seeds in there and grow them!
