For this month’s competition, we challenge you to make your own silly cress heads.

Cress heads are so much fun! Cress seeds sprout and grow REALLY quickly, adding a funky hairdo to any decorated egg or pot. Simply add wet kitchen paper or cotton wool to the base of an eggshell or recycled pot, and sprinkle on your cress seeds. Place them on a sunny windowsill and give them a spray with water daily. No compost needed!
