easter hen cress heads

In amongst the various seeds I sorted on Friday I discovered a rather old packet of cress. So this afternoon the children created their very own easter cress heads. We cut up an old egg box to create 'nests' for the hens to rest on and then they got happy with the glue and paint, before adding cotton wool, seeds and a drop(ish) of water.

As we had some grown cress in the kitchen I added it to one hen so you can see what the end result may look like if we remember to water the other two. Rather funky chickens I think!
