Easter Egg Ideas for Bento!

While everyone is busy getting ready for Easter, there still lies the age old question--what to do with the rest of the boiled eggs???

Now, we'll probably make egg salad and/or eat them plain, but wanted to share two fun ideas I blogged out last year that are so cute in bentos!



Easter Egg deviled egg chicks! Cut the egg in half across the middle, scoop out the filling, mix it up a bit, then rescoop with a melon baller and put back into the egg white. These ones have carrot beaks and two jimmies as the eyes. Cucumber, raisin, red lettuce, etc, also work great for eyes, I just didn't have it at the time of the original post.



Egg bunnies! These are the ones I made for Ben's preschool picnic last year. Cut the egg in half lengthwise, then decorate with carrot ears and cucumber/red lettuce/spinach faces.



Of course, you could still make egg salad! We liked our bunny wraps with egg salad--make your wrap, then cut two little slits in the top for carrot bunny ears and decorate the face!

In case I don't make lunch tomorrow, Hoppy Easter in advance! :)

  4. Awesome ideas, Shannon! The wrap looks really good. Plus it is the Year of the Rabbit, so another excuse to decorate those eggs.
