Egg Carton Garden

Materials: cardboard egg carton, seeds (let your child choose a variety), soil, water, markers, craft sticks 

Cut top off egg carton and set aside. Use markers to decorate carton. Poke holes in each “dome” to allow water to drain. Place the top underneath like a tray. Fill each dome with soil. Plant 1-3 seeds in each dome (about 1/2 inch deep). Use markers and craft sticks to label what you planted in each dome. Lightly water and place on a sunny windowsill. Water your garden and record observations daily. After the seeds have sprouted, move sprouts to a larger pot or outside garden. Water them regularly and watch them grow.
