How cute are these little turkey planters?  They make me smile every time I see them.  Rosie and Jewel both love them, too!  They have delighted in checking their gobblers each morning to see how much their feathers have grown.

Making these adorable little turkeys is pretty easy, too!

To make Growing Gobblers you will need:
(affiliate links provided)
  • Emptied out egg shells (we used brown egg shells)
  • Wheat grass seeds
  • Soil
  • Googly eyes
  • Craft foam (to make the nose and feet)
  • Water & a semi-sunny window
Start by hallowing out a few egg shells.  This is very easy.  All you have to do is take a butter knife and tap the top of the egg just hard enough to crack the surface.  Then use your hands to break away the desired amount of shell.  I wanted the growing grass to look like feathers so I cracked my egg according to that plan

Empty the inside of the egg into a bowl.  I saved our shells as I made breakfast one morning.  Once the shells are emptied rinse them with warm water and a squirt of dish soap.  Then decorate the front of the egg(s) to look like a turkey.

Add a little soil and wheat grass seeds.  Top with more soil and water the gobbler.  Place the gobblers in a sunny window if possible.  Then wait .............
