Easter Egg Lunch | Exploring and Eating with Easter Eggs

Exploring with Easter Eggs

This is Sweet Pea’s second Easter but now that she’s one she will be able to experience the holiday a bit more. To help her learn the fun of Easter eggs I made her a very special Easter egg lunch.

Exploring and Eating with Easter Eggs
I filled each egg with bits of the following: strawberries, cheesy pasta, pork, corn and broccoli. I presented the eggs in one of her play bowls and she knew just what to do. It was hysterical watching her eat. It reminded me of shucking a clam. She cracked it open, dug it out and slurped down the goods. Of course Sweet Pea then threw each egg aside hunting for more! I only wish I filled more Easter eggs because she still wanted more after her eggs were emptied. So I ended up fixing her another entire plate. Sweet Pea was not in the mood for me to refill the eggs she wanted to eat that very instant so our activity was over.

We have since filled the eggs again with other meals and snacks too. For a snack we’ve used Cheerios, cheddar bunnies, puffs, pretzels, grapes, black berries and watermelon. Anything you can think of that fits in an egg!!

Eating Easter Eggs

This was a super fun and easy way to explore with Easter eggs! I had to hand wash the eggs before and after using them as her “plate” but I didn’t mind. I just giggled as I washed the remaining slime thinking of her little paws digging out her food. I did learn that broccoli still isn’t a favorite even if its disguised in an egg. But don’t you worry I’ll continue working on that. :)

Easter Lunch for Kids

PS-The Easter Bunny told me he plans on hiding eggs for Sweet Pea with Annie’s Bunny Grahams inside. Sounds like an eggstra special treat to me!
