Rock Paper Scissors: “Egghead With Grass Hair”

After making my last “Good Eats” recipe I saved the eggshells and used them for this fun craft/gardening experiment to do with the kids!

Of course this was Ruby’s with the bow and feather/flower 🙂 I think it’s adorable and it will be even cuter once it’s “hair” grows in!

 What You Need:

  • Fresh eggs
  • Cotton balls (2 for each egg) or potting soil if you prefer
  • Grass seeds
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Paint or crayons
  • Any additional craft items to decorate eggs with
  • Egg carton or egg cups


  1. Carefully crack the top of your egg open with a sharp knife and slowly peel away at the shell to leave a clean opening
  2. Glue two googly eyes to your egg
  3. Decorate face/shell as desired
  4. Dip a cotton ball in water and place inside shell
  5. Saturate a second cotton ball in water and cover in grass seeds, place in shell
  6. Prop eggshell in an egg carton or egg cup and wait for hair (grass) to grow!
  7. Once the hair starts growing in, the kids can have fun giving their egghead a haircut!
