After a recent baking frenzy we were left with quite a few eggshells. We opted to spare them from the trashcan (albeit temporarily) and put them to good use by making egg heads.
Grace drew a face on each of the shells, added a bit of soil, sprinkled them with winter wheat, then spritzed them with water. In a matter of a week or so our egg people had full heads of "hair". At that point Grace decided each was in need of a haircut - which to no surprise was her favorite part of the process.
Mr. Eggshell Man got quite a trim wouldn't you say?
