Decorate your Egg Friend! Sharpies work great, just remember to be careful, they are fragile. We also used some adhesive foam shapes to decorate the eggs and cup holders. We used a small paper cup and cut out the bottom of the cup, and then turned it upside down. It prevents the egg from rolling over.

Next, add soil, and then sprinkle grass seed on top of the soil. Add a little more soil to gently cover the grass seed. Then water, just until the soil is wet.
