Another day, another Easter egg. Yup. Easter will be here on Sunday and I’m so excited because of the kiddo. She makes all the holidays better and the kiddo helped me with this little Strawberry Easter Egg DIY. I prepped the eggs, then we painted together. She had so much fun helping me and it was so easy to make with a kiddo. I shared a full tutorial on the HP Create blog, and it comes with a free printable. Guys, this is such a fun and different way to create some Easter eggs for the bunny to hide!
To check out the full tutorial and get the free printable, head on over to the original post on the HP Create Blog.

I’m always thinking of new ways to make snack or meal time fun for the kid (you can check out some past ideas here). So this snack idea was inspired by Easter. These little chicks are hatching for the Spring. These would be very cute for an Easter morning breakfast!

Chick Boiled Egg Snack Directions:
Boil some eggs (you can check out my how to boil the perfect egg post here). Let them cool completely.
Peel the shell off the eggs.
Cut the egg in half, then cut the bottom of each half so it has a flat base and can sit.
Flip the yolk are around in the egg half so the round side of the yolk is face up.
Cut some triangles out of carrot, and place them on the yellow yolk. Add the “eyes” and you’re done!
I don’t even know how many techniques I’ve tried to create the best hard boiled eggs. So many times, I’ve failed at the boiled egg situation (I tend to overcook them). For the past few months the technique below has worked for me over and over. I love keeping boiled eggs in the fridge, since they are such a quick and easy snack.
How To Make The Best Hard Boiled Eggs
Put the eggs into a pot, fill with water to about 1 – 2 inches above the eggs.
Bring the water to a rolling boil. At that point put a lid on the pot and turn off the heat. Note: if you have the type of stove top that cools fast, reduce the heat to simmer for about a minute. After that, set a timer for 10 minutes.
When the timer is up, cool the eggs in some cold water and place in the fridge.
When the eggs are cool, you’re ready! Note: eggs that are older are easy to peel. Eggs that are a couple days old are perfect for this project. If you don’t have that time, put the eggs in the freezer for about 25 minutes and then peel them. Don’t forget about them in there!
Come back tomorrow for a cute egg snack for the kids. Snack ideas!
