Mini Greenhouse made with Egglands Best Carton

This post may contain affiliate links. For more info please read the full disclosure statement

I thought this Mini Greenhouse made with Egglands Best Carton was very cool since all we eat are Eggland’s Best Eggs!  There are always coupons out for them and they are awesome!  I came across this mini article in Eggland’s Best Eggs’ Newsletter!  I thought it was so interesting I needed to pass it on!  What an “eggselent” idea!!  This would be a great activity to do with your children or if you are a teacher, it would be great for a class!  Here are the details from Eggland’s!

To make a mini greenhouse, cut off the top of an Eggland’s Best cage free or organic plastic carton. Take a safety pin and poke a hole in each of the 12 egg shapes (this is where the water will go up to the roots).  Put the top underneath the egg carton, and fill with soil and seeds. Then water, and use the old top (now the bottom) as a reserve. The perfect egg carton greenhouse! The plastic water reserve on the bottom of the carton keeps roots growing down, making for happier transplants when it’s time to head outside.

*****We would like to make a revision to the post!  This idea was first seen on grow indie!!  Check it out on her site!
