I'm Kat, also known as Mama Kat to anyone who's been blogging with me back before it was cool to use your real whole name online. I'm a wife and mother to three, I've operated a home daycare for ten years now and I found an outlet for my crazy days with the kids when I started my blog, Mama's Losin' It. I spend my weekends embarrassing myself on YouTube, watching reality TV and chasing children down our hallway. In a happy way. Usually.
When I initially saw seedlings sprouting from eggshells, I thought they looked cute, but I wasn't sure why someone would go to the trouble of planting seeds this way. Growing plants inside eggshells seemed a little over the top, but once I realized people were doing this as a clever way to transport sprouting plants into their garden, it made perfect sense. Once transported, the eggshell actually feeds your garden!
It's also helpful for people interested in growing herbs indoors, but don't have a garden. Growing them from an egg carton is a space saver and it's ecological and it can make for a lovely centerpiece.
With this in mind, I grabbed a carton of eggs, top soil, and seeds and started my project!
Pinterest provides a ton of creative ideas to dye Easter eggs as an alternative to the traditional dye kit we can find in stores. When I saw the option to dye Easter eggs with shaving cream pop up again and again, I decided to give it a try!
I loved this idea because all you need to complete the craft is shaving cream, eggs, and food coloring -- things I already had on hand. After spraying shaving cream into a shallow glass dish, we added drops of food coloring, swirled it around and rolled our eggs through.
After letting the eggs dry a bit with the colorful shaving cream in place, we wiped them off and were eager to discover whether or not the color actually stuck!
