A garden-friendly take on confetti eggs
A fun craft for kiddos and adults alike, this Earth-month DIY is a perfect springtime activity. Fill eggshells with dirt and seeds and patch with tissue paper. Kids will love throwing and everyone can enjoy the wildflowers that bloom!
- eggshells (empty, rinsed and dried, with a hole cut on each end)
- seeds (we used wildflowers!)
- potting soil
- tissue paper
- paint brush (for applying glue)
- small funnel
*Before you start, be sure your eggshells have dried completely.
**Use regular school glue for this project, it is non-toxic and easily washes away with water. Using decoupage or other craft glue could cause the seeds not to sprout.
- Spread a little bit of glue all around the smaller hole in one end of the egg. Take a small piece of tissue paper (we cut ours into shapes, but anything that covers the hole will do) and stick it down onto the glue. Paint over the tissue until it lays flat against the eggshell.
- Carefully fill the eggshell with a bit of potting soil, then a few teaspoons of wildflower seeds, then a bit more soil. You do not have to fill the egg all the way, but the more seeds you have in there, the better chance of blooms!
- Seal up the other end of the eggshells with more tissue paper and glue.
