Egg Carton Seed Starting

Updated: Mar 25, 2020

Early spring is an ideal time to start exploring plants, gardening and the life-cycle. Starting seed early will provide the opportunity for care and observation of the plant as it grows.


  • Egg Carton

  • Soil

  • Seeds

  • Water


1. Start by reading a book about plants

2. Ask children what they know and wonder about plants, perhaps recording their answers and

questions down on a whiteboard or piece of paper

3. Set up soil, egg carton and seeds and support child in planting the seeds in each carton section

4. Encourage experimentation. What happens if a lot of seeds is in one section? What if there is

only one? Try it out and see what happens!


Activities and books to explore gardening with young children.
