This activity uses a great level of skill, as children have to carefully pull off the cress and then gently press it onto the line of glue. It takes a lot of concentration and focus! My children love being outside and pulling up grass and daisy’s, so I thought pulling off cress would make a fun activity and I was right! We later used the remaining cress to make egg mayonnaise and cress sandwiches…yummy!
