Grow Your Own Cress Head

Making your own cress head at home is a fun and inexpensive way to get kids involved in gardening! Here is our step by step guide for you to try it at home:

  1. Find a container that you can draw on and grow in. This could be an old plant pot, a fibre pot, an empty yogurt pot, the bottom of a plastic bottle or even an old egg shell.
  2. Get creative and draw on a happy smiling face.
  3. Put some wet kitchen roll in the bottom of your container and put some damp cotton wool on top of that.
  4. Evenly spread some cress seeds on top of the cotton wool and press them down gently.
  5. Put the pot in a warm place that gets some sunlight, like a windowsill.
  6. Watch the cress grow and the hair fill in! This should happen after about 7 days.

Top tip! Why not make a nice egg & cress sandwich with what you grow; perfect for a nice picnic in the garden!
