Osterdeko Basteln Kresse-Eier

Cress eggs as Easter decoration

In parts of Scandinavia, it is traditional to sow lawns shortly before Easter to herald the arrival of spring. We thought that you could also use cress for this. Then you can even eat it afterwards.

Osterdeko Basteln Kresse

What you need

  • several eggs
  • Cress seeds
  • Cotton wool or cotton pads
  • pens or paint to colour the eggs if necessary

And this is how it works

  1. Carefully tap the eggs in one place so that you can break off the top part of the egg. Make sure that most of the egg remains intact. After all, you still want to plant the cress.
  2. Next, you can colour the eggs however you like. Contact As the eggs could come into contact with water when watering the cress, it would be a good idea if the paint is waterproof.
  3. Now all you have to do is place 1-2 cotton pads or a piece of cotton wool in each egg and sprinkle the cress seeds on top.
  4. In order for the cress to grow, it needs to be watered regularly. It should not stand in water, but make sure that the cotton wool is always slightly damp. After a while, the cress should have grown well and look similar to the DIY Family.

    Our tip: You can use the contents of the egg to make scrambled eggs, for example.

Easter bunny made from twigs

This cute idea is perfect for our little ones. First of all, you need to get out into the fresh air, as you will need several small forks of branch.

And this is how it works

  1. Start by wrapping the wool around the long section of the branch. But leave a little space up to the fork.
  2. This is where you will draw the bunny's eyes with a white and black pencil.
  3. The long bunny ears form the forks of the branch. If you want even cooler ears , you can now cut out bunny ears from craft paper and glue them to the branch. Cute, isn't it?
