Cress Heads Make
Make your very own cress heads and watch them grow!
You will need:
- A yogurt pot
- Cotton wool
- Kitchen roll
- Cress seeds
- Paint and paint brushes
Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.
What to do:
Take the label off the yogurt pot and paint a funny face on top.
Put some wet kitchen roll in the bottom and put some damp cotton wool on top of that. Make sure there are a couple of centimetres left at the top.
Evenly spread some cress seeds on top of the cotton wool and press them down gently (you can add some food colouring to the cotton wool if you want the cress “hair” to be a different colour).
Put the pot in a warm place that gets some sunlight, like a windowsill.
Watch the cress grow! This should happen after about 7 days.
