Royal Wedding crafty cress

The Royal Wedding is the first big national event since Edward was born and I’ve been busy collecting flags and souvenirs so we can watch the Royal Wedding and create some memories of our own. I thought it would be fun to make Royal Wedding crafty cress heads – a simple craft with quick, visible results – for the special occasion.

You will need:

an egg box

2 eggs

colouring pens and paper to decorate

cress seeds

cotton wool


Carefully crack the tops of your eggs and remove the egg from the shell, wash and dry the egg shell. Fill with a small amount of cotton wool and sprinkle in some cress seeds. Draw faces onto your egg shells and make small paper crowns. Water every day and within 5 days you should have sprouting royalty!
