Start off by drawing a funny face on your card, colour it in, & cut it outStick onto your pot, fairly near the top (so when the cress grows it looks like hair)Put some compost in the pot & sprinkle the cress seeds over the topAdd a little water & place on a windowsill or somewhere near daylightWatch the seeds as they grow & add a little water if the soil feels dry.
The funny face will soon have funky green ‘hair’, just watch it grow.
When it’s time to give it a haircut, simply cut the cress with scissors, & then enjoy it in a sandwich or salad.
A great activity to introduce seeds/plants to children, how to care for living things, to talk about what plants need to grow, & to encourage children to grow their own food.
