It’s after the Easter Holiday and you look in the fridge. You see tie-dyed eggs, neon eggs, oh and crayon resist eggs you saw on Pinterest that you had to try. What are you going to do with them all!? If only your kids were as excited about eating them as you are about getting them out of your fridge. Well, try this fun snack kids can make themselves. They’ll love making art with their food!
How to: Egg Faces Snack
I made this snack into an activity by having my daughter come up with some of the ingredients we could use to make faces on our eggs. We brainstormed lots of things to get her really involved in the creative process. Ultimately we were constrained by the limited supplies in the refrigerator; cucumbers, carrots, and sunflower seeds, but we’ll have lots of ideas for next time!
My daughter made the boiled eggs all by herself using this safe and easy method that makes peeling really easy. Then she cut the eggs into thin slices. It was a little tricky, but she enjoyed eating the scraps.
We prepared everything else we needed to assemble our snack; toasted the toast, peeled some carrots and cut up some cucumbers.
For younger children, this could be a great time to talk about feelings and the different faces we make for each. Can your child make a mad egg face? How about a super silly one? Or how about making a face yourself and seeing if your child can copy it? Whatever you end up doing, it will be deliciously fun!
My daughter loved making her faces, and eating them too. She even asked me if she could make them again tomorrow. Good breakfast idea Audrey! And if she wants to clear my fridge of boiled eggs, God bless her heart!
What kind of ingredients would you use to make egg faces? I think a little homemade fry sauce would be good!
If you make these at home with your child, please share a picture on our Facebook page. I’d love to share the cuteness with my followers.
