Okay, so I'm outdoing myself with my gift to the KidsPlayers for this show. I don't really want to give away my idea in case one of them stumbles onto this blog, but suffice it to say, I'm trying my hand at growing something. I have blown out the yolks of 42 eggs, cut the tops out with fingernail scissors (did you know you that eggshells can be cut?), coated them with ModPodge to make them stronger, glued them into small flower pots, filled them 2/3 full with dirt, added a tablespoon of water, sprinkled in grass seed, and then added another bit of dirt to cover the seed.
I was discussing the project with my partners at the Gallery and made the (apparently hysterically funny) mistake of asking about planting grass seed right side up so it would grow UP instead of down into the dirt. Their response, once they finished wiping their eyes, was, "Nature finds a way...."
Was it really that dumb a question??
