Get a start on your garden and teach children how food grows and also recycling egg cartons.
Bottom of egg carton
Easy-to-grow vegetable, flower or herb seeds
Poke small hole in bottom of each egg cup (for drainage).
Fill each egg cup ¾ full with potting soil.
Plant a seed in each egg cup.
Water, put in sunny window & continue to water when dry. Watch plants grow! (They will need to be transplanted to the garden or bigger pots when they outgrow their pots.)
Make sure you have a pan or something underneath to catch any water that may drain through the egg carton.
