Make Your Own Chia Pet

Make Your Own Chia Pet

To make your own Chia Pet you will need:

  • egg shells (crack them with care so you have a shell large enough to work with)
  • potting soil
  • seeds
  • bottle caps
  • magic markers

Rinse out the egg shell and draw a face on it. Then balance it on the
bottle cap and fill it with potting soil, add the seeds, and water sparingly. Use fast growing seeds such as wheat grass. You can also plant tiny plants in the egg shells. The best way to water the egg shell chias is with a spray bottle. Place the egg shells on a sunny window sill and watch them grow!!
