How to sprout wheat in an eggshell

So let’s start. First, we have to release the shell from the egg contents. Then we wash and dry it.

Dilute the dye for Easter eggs (instructions are usually on the package), which can easily be purchased in any store. We paint our shells.

Now the most interesting part of the work, which will surely appeal to your children. Take the soil and fill the shell half.

Now decorated shells need to fill the grain. First, we soak the millet in warm water for 15 minutes — it must be that it is faster in the future sprouted.

Tightly in a single layer stacked millet, because the thicker the layer, the more elaborate will germinate Bush.

And the last layer is the ground, it needs quite a bit to hide the grain.

Carefully pour a small amount of water. If you have such a container as in the photo, you can just close for the day. If not, then wrap in a bag so that seed turned out to be a kind of mini greenhouse.

Once the sprouts will break, don’t forget to spray them with water every day, because millet loves moisture.

Just a few days and our bushes ready and pleasing to the eye this spring greens. Happy Easter!
