Give me a holiday and I will most definitely be making some cute food to go along with it! I've been doing it way back even before I had kids. It's just something I love to do and these ideas for Easter and simple but still tons of fun!
The Easter Egg Snack Tray - This is a super simple way to make snack time a little more festive. Simply take an empty egg carton and fill the holes with plastic eggs. You can either use just the bottoms or simply open the whole egg and seal up the snacks for a surprise each time they open one up!
This is also great for the kids table at Easter. My picky eaters are never too excited about most family meals so having their own food available means I don't have to worry about making sure they eat.
Looking for another way to make the kids table more fun? Check out to DIY table cloth we made using another kitchen tool. Take cookie cutters and have them trace the shapes on the back of wrapping paper. Use it as a tablecloth for easy clean up! They could even color the pictures in while they are enjoying time together.
Hard Boiled Egg Chicks - These cute little eggs are so darn cute but so easy to make! I like to make a bunch of HBE in my instant pot because they cook perfectly every time and are so easy to peel! My good friend also shared with me her stovetop method that has great results too.
Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs
Place a trivet in the bottom of your pot. Put the eggs on top and pour in one cup of water. Cover and set the lid to sealing. Cook on manual high pressure for 1 minute. Once the timer goes off, let the pot sit at pressure for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes release any leftover pressure and remove the eggs. Done!
Stovetop Hard Boiled Eggs
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Place the eggs in and boil for 15 minutes. As soon as they are done, place them in an ice water bath to stop them cooking. Done!
To make the chick, simply peel the egg. Take a knife and start towards the middle of the bottom of the egg. Press the knife in gently until it just hits the yoke and make a zig zag pattern all the way around the egg. Once you make it all the way around, gently take the two whites apart and reveal the yellow yolk chick in the center! Use a small triangle of carrot for the nose and black sesame seeds for the eyes.
Easter Egg Fruit Tray - If you're wanting to switch up the traditional egg dying decorating, why not create your own fruit filled egg! Take pieces of fruit and arrange them into a beautiful pattern on an oval tray. It makes a great fruit tray and the kids will love to eat too!
