Egg Shell Planters!

How fun is this idea?

Save your large egg shells next time you bake, wash them out (or not!) and plant them with seeds.  Once the plants are large enough, just transfer the whole egg into the ground.  The shell is actually a great fertilizer and the roots will be able to break right through.

Fun for Easter, fun for kids, and fun for you!

  2. Wow this is an adorable idea for spring…not to mention a great way to reduce and reuse! They have a beautiful organic look to them :) I’m so thrilled to have found a non-food related activity for Easter (special RA diet). Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi again! I just wanted to let you know that this was one of the most clicked-on links last week! Congratulations! I’m featuring it at today’s Teach Me Tuesday!!

  4. Looks beautiful!! We have planted our seeds into egg cartons that can be directly transplanted into the garden, but never into the actual egg shells! I love it!! We will definitely be adding this to our Clubhouse Window Garden, thanks for sharing :)
