got Easter eggs??

Who has a dozen or more colored Easter eggs? I do, I do. Not sure what to do with them besides make an overwhelming amount of egg salad sandwiches? Well, we made some egg salad sandwiches too, but we also made a few fun eggs for the kiddos. Just peel the colored shell off your egg and decorate with a few items you probably already have in your fridge. No word of a lie, my kiddos ate them right up. And that’s saying a lot because Kirsten normally won’t eat a hard-boiled egg. Check out these cuties:

Chickie egg mama – slice off a little bit from the bottom of the egg so it stands up. Using a knife, slice some feet, a beak, and some head feathers out of your carrot. The eyes are 2 sprinkles.

Chickie egg baby – I made this little cutie 2 years ago, but I’m showing him again because he’s pretty adorable. Slice a hard-boiled egg in half. Slice a little off the bottom so the egg will sit flat on the plate. He has 2 sprinkle eyes and a sliced carrot nose.

Easter bunny egg – slice off a little bit from the bottom of the egg so it stands up. Using a knife, slice 2 feet, 2 ears, and a nose out of carrot. The whiskers are made out of thin celery slices and he has 2 sprinkle eyes.

Happy Easter everyone!

    How fun and creative these are, I bet the kids did love them. Caught up on your posts, love them all. My kids would go crazy over kool-aid eggs, will remember that for next year. Hope it was a Happy Easter for your family.

    Thank-you so much ladies! Melissa – I didn’t do anything to get the carrot to stick. I just dried the egg with a paper towel and the carrot stuck right on. If you have difficulty you could always use something sticky like cream cheese to get it to stay too. I hope that helps!

      Ha! I just looked at the bottom of the plate, and that’s exactly what it is! I think I bought it at Crate and Barrel a few years ago. My dad was born and raised in Ratingen, Germany. He lived there until he was 10, when he moved to Canada. I still have distant family living there and I’ve always wanted to go. Thanks for visiting my blog Bianca!

    These are so cute! I wonder if you could use poppy seeds instead of sprinkles for the eyes?
    Keep blogging!

      Thanks Anna! Sure you could use poppy seeds – they might be a little small though. I’ve seen black sesame seeds and I really liked the look of that, but I couldn’t find them in the store. You can really use anything!
