Materials Needed:

  • 1 hard-boiled egg, peeled
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 sheet of nori
  • iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • small knife
  • scissors
  • 1 colorful candy/baking cup

Make Chick's Beak

Using the knife, cut a small triangle from the carrot to make chick's beak. Use the scissors to cut tiny circles for eyes from the nori. Set aside.

Cut Egg

Holding the egg, use the knife to gently cut a zigzag around the center of the egg so it looks like it has been cracked, making sure not to cut the yolk (Image 1). Using both hands, wiggle the top cut part of the egg white from the yolk and set aside (Image 2).

Apply Face

Apply nori eyes and carrot beak to the yolk, and place the egg into a baking cup that has been filled with lettuce.

Finish by placing the top of the egg white back onto the yolk at a slight angle so the face still shows.
