Hi Friends,

Turn a basic hard-boiled egg into an adorable hatching chick with a few simple materials. Kids will love this sweet addition to the holiday table.

Materials Needed:
  • 1 hard-boiled egg, peeled 
  • 1 carrot 
  • 1 sheet of nori 
  • iceberg lettuce, shredded 
  • small knife 
  • scissors 
  • 1 colorful candy/baking cup

Make Chick's Beak
Using the knife, cut a small triangle from the carrot to make chick's beak. Use the scissors to cut tiny circles for eyes from the nori. Set aside.

Cut Egg
Holding the egg, use the knife to gently cut a zigzag around the center of the egg so it looks like it has been cracked, making sure not to cut the yolk (Image 1). Using both hands, wiggle the top cut part of the egg white from the yolk and set aside (Image 2).

Apply Face
Apply nori eyes and carrot beak to the yolk, and place the egg into a baking cup that has been filled with lettuce.

Finish by placing the top of the egg white back onto the yolk at a slight angle so the face still shows.

Your family and friends will appreciate the extra time you spent to present such a novel gift.

Happy Easter to you and yours...
