Reuse egg shells to plant seeds

I created little planters for my pepper seeds, using old egg shells and the egg box to hold them in.

It’s super easy and a great idea to do with the kids.

  1. Wash out the old egg shells
  2. Place them in the egg box
  3. Fill each one with compost (this can be from your garden or an old potted plant you have around the house)
  4. Make a small well in the centre of each one
  5. Place 1-2 seeds inside and cover back up with the soil
  6. Give them a little water
  7. Place on to your windowsill
  8. Now, watch them grow!

Go for a Nature Walk

The perfect cure to Sunday boredom, is to wrap up warm, don your muddiest wellies and get out of the house for a nature walk.
Whilst out walking, listen carefully to the different sounds around you. From the rustle of the trees, to the birds singing and soaring, high in the sky.

How many flowers, trees and animals can you identify?
Don’t forget your social distancing too.
