Cress Pots

Cress Pots

You will need a few simple items for this activity:

Old yoghurt pots,

Pens , paint or stickers to decorate your pots,

Cotton wool,

Cress seeds,

Decorate the outside of your clean empty yogurt pot as brightly as you want.  A face is fun as the cress can become it’s funky hairstyle as it grows.

Then fill your pot with cotton wool and water it gently just enough to make it damp and sprinkle on cress seeds.

Pop in a warm sunny place, a windowsill is ideal and keep moist.

Within a week there should be a lovely growth of cress to be harvested.
