Egg-cellent! Heart Shaped Eggs!

One of my Aunts emailed me a list of ‘25 Clever Things’. She knows I’m not a Suzy Homemaker but there were a couple of good ones on there and this one grabbed my attention.

I think they’d be perfect for Valentine’s Day breakfast for your little ones and they were very easy to make.

 

You will need:

1 Hard boiled egg
A chopstick
2 rubber bands
Piece of card

Here’s what we did:

1) The original instructions called for a milk carton, but here in the UK I haven’t seen any as our milk tends to come in plastic jugs. I used a piece of card (approx 8x20cm), more specifically, the front cover of an estate-agents folder. I chose this as it had a coating so the egg didn’t stick t to it.

2) Fold the card in half. You may have to trim it a bit later. See picture.

3) Peel the egg when it is still warm and place it in the card. The gently press the chopstick into it, not too hard, as I did and damaged the egg a bit. Then secure each end with a rubber band.

4) Then place in the fridge for 10-15 min.

5) Remove the package and but the egg in half perpendicular to the chopstick dent.

    1. I also loved the idea of velcro strips on the wall for soft toys…but not sure if that would work?
