Piggy Herb Garden

Here’s a little craft you can do with the kiddos that will actually benefit you, if you like fresh herbs.

Here’s what you will need for this craft:

  • 3 Large Eggs
  • Bowl
  • Egg Carton
  • Waterproof Markers
  • Potting Soil
  • Herb Seeds

Start by making a hole in the top of your eggs, about the size of a quarter. Empty the eggs into your bowl and use those to scramble later! Carefully clean the eggs with a little soap and water, rinse thoroughly and allow them to dry.

Once your eggshells are dry, get creative by drawing some fun faces on your eggs. We did pigs but any face will be fun for this project. Remember be very very careful.

Fill your shells with soil and sprinkle your seeds inside. Set them in your egg carton. We trimmed ours down to 3 and it fits perfectly in the window sill. Use your marker to label the carton and set your herb egg in it’s appropriate place. Gently water.

Set them in a sunny spot and make sure to keep the soil moist, before you know it you will have little sprouts of herbs ready to garnish your delicious dinner.
