Three sensory activities to unlock the power of the humble egg shell...
Omelettes, pancakes, scrambled, boiled, baked into a lovely jammy
Victoria Sponge - where do your eggs end up?
However you cook them, we really hope two things:
1. They came from happy, healthy chickens.
2. You don’t chuck the egg shells away.
Here's what you can do with them...
idea one: sow them!
idea two: crunch them!
Soft-bodied insects like slugs and snails don’t like crawling over sharp
egg shells. We don’t blame them. So defend your garden the natural
way by getting your little one to smoosh the shells with a potato masher.
This is a great way to encourage gross motor skills and strength and the
crunch crunch crunch is always a crowd-pleaser for toddlers. Once
you’re done, sprinkle the sharp bits of shell on your flower beds or
vegetable patch for some natural protection!
idea three: grind them!
share the love!
We’d love to see you getting to grips with some shell smashing, as well
as any cress heads you manage to grow... If this post has inspired you
to do something snazzy with your leftover eggs shells, share your photos
with us on Instagram, Facebook or TikTok, don't forget to tag us so we can see it!
We design our clothes to last, because we know that’s good for the
planet, as well as your pocket:
- High quality organic cotton
- Reinforced seams
- Robust design that will grow with your child
All this means they can go through wash after wash (and even child after
child) coming out looking great. So you can be sure a bit of egg shell
smooshing and gardening is a walk in the park...
