What you need
Some paint, glue, googly eyes, small red pom pom
Cotton wool balls
A little water
Some cress seeds
Something to stand your clown cress head in
Very carefully take the top of the egg off using a knife. Empty the contents of the egg in a bowl (to use as you please) and very gently swill out with water.
Next up decorate your clown. Either paint his features on or glue on some wobbly eyes and pom poms as we did. Whichever way you choose to decorate your egg, do be ever so careful as the empty egg shells are very delicate.
Once the clown faces have dried, dampen the cotton wool balls, wringing out any excess water and very carefully place inside the empty clown heads.
Sprinkle a small spoonful of seeds onto the damp cotton wool.
Place on a sunny window sill and wait for the clowns to grow their crazy green hair.
Sprinkle a little water into the egg shell each day.
Once the clown has sprouted lots of hair, give him a hair cut and use the cress in egg sandwiches for a real retro treat.
Why not use your spare egg whites to bake a batch of Almond Orange Bites that we featured on the blog yesterday
