Celebrate Easter this year with a colorful egg decorating party, followed by a classic egg hunt. From invitations and crafts to games and food ideas, you'll find everything you need to plan a day your kids will never forget in our earlier post.
Today, lets make Healthy & Cute Basket Lunches. Serve the kids a nutritious lunch comprised of a bunny-shaped sandwich, fresh strawberries, pasta salad and an adorable hard-boiled egg chick. Painted wooden berry baskets are the perfect size to serve all of the lunch items and they coordinate perfectly with the party theme. The cutest is the little Hatching Chick Egg hiding in the left back of the basket and today we will learn how to make this fun little guy.
Make a Hatching Chick Egg for Easter
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.
- 1 hard-boiled egg, peeled
- 1 carrot
- 1 sheet of nori
- iceberg lettuce, shredded
- small knife
- 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.
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 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.
The kids will love this...
