1. Create Your Own Egg Carton Herb Garden
While it’s still not quite warm enough to plant seeds in your garden, you can get a head start by growing seedlings indoors! Using recycled egg cartons, soil and a variety of seeds, this earthy craft is a wonderful way to try your hand at gardening. And if you have kids, they can get in on the fun too — by helping plant the seeds and even decorating their own egg cartons with paint or markers!
Start small with easy-to-grow herbs like oregano, mint and parsley, which you can then transfer outdoors as they grow/once the weather is warm enough.
What you’ll need: Egg carton, scissors, potting soil, seeds of choice, water, spray bottle
