An eggshell mini garden is a great little creative project that you can do in spring. Even better, don't wait and do it now! This is also a fun activity for the kids to do, and easy. Let's see how:

First, tap lightly all the way around the narrower end of the egg about 1/3 down from the top, creating an opening in the shell. Carefully pull off shell “cap” and pour egg contents into bowl. I also add drainage, but that's optional.

Using egg dye, dye eggshells the same way you dye hard-boiled eggs.
Fill it with potting soil and water, so the soil is moist. Plant the seeds.
Find a sunny spot for your starter garden to rest and the seeds will begin to germinate. To see a few more details on how to start your mini garden and help your seedlings grow, and more options of this cute spring gardening project, visit

      Just regular brown eggs from the grocery store. The zoom in might have to do with size perception - not intentional, sorry.
