We dyed eggs too early this year and consequently I’ve had almost 1,000 egg hunts in our backyard with my daughter. I’m exaggerating but it feels like we have had hourly egg hunts for the past 5 days. Today I convinced her to give up the eggs for a fun cooking project. She only agreed to hand over the eggs because I asked for her help in the kitchen.
We took her pretty eggs and turned them into lunch.
Our lunch project started with her peeling the eggs. This turned into a great time consuming activity.
After each egg was peeled my daughter helped me wash them. Then she smashed the peeled eggs into small pieces. She was very excited to see the bowl getting full of egg pieces.
I added a small amount of Miracle Whip to the egg pieces to make egg salad. My daughter was amazed to see her dyed eggs turn into our lunch. You could make a plain sandwich but I have found that my daughter is much more willing to try something new if I turn it into a fun shape. I used a rabbit cookie cutter from the Wilton Animal Pals 50 Piece Cookie Cutter Set to make a bunny sandwich.
My daughter loved the egg salad sandwich but I’m not sure she will eat it again unless the process starts with colored Easter eggs.
