Hard Boiled Egg Snacks

Easter is approaching, in many programs, that calls for Easter egg hunts, egg coloring and the like. Easter isn't your thing?  Hard boiled eggs are still delicious and a good source of protein. These are some ideas and recipes to use in your program and get the kids involved too.

  • 5 Delicious Egg Recipes for Kids: One of my favorite things about these 5 recipes is that it is food you typically already make and add the egg to it.   Some ideas include, making guacamole and putting hard boiled eggs in it, adding hard boiled eggs to tuna, or stirring hard boiled eggs and roasted red peppers into store bought hummus.
  • Hard Boiled Egg Boats:  Are of course adorable, delicious and easy!  The kids could also take part in this one.
  • Hatching Hard Boiled Eggs:  Carrots and hard boiled eggs are all you need for these adorable snacks.
  • Mouse - cute looking mouse on a piece of cheese with a salad too!

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on ChildCareInfo.com is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building ChildCareInfo.com.
