Make the kids an Easter Egg Lunch they will always remember using a plastic egg carton and plastic Easter eggs filled with munchable snacks.
Kids love to eat with their hands, especially their fingers so when mine were little I would make them Easter Egg Lunches.
It started at home when they were wee toddlers and progressed to school lunches.
They are bigger now (tweens) and still in school therefore small lunches like this will not be enough to fill them up. They get normal sized lunches!
We do however still send these egg carton snacks along in their lunches at Easter time filling with them with chocolate and candy (ie: jelly beans).
Here’s what you will need to get make your own Easter Egg Lunch.
- A six pack egg carton works best as it fits perfectly into lunch boxes and bags, and is not overwhelming (one per child)
- Colourful, clean plastic Easter eggs
- Snacks chopped up and ready to go
You can make these completely gluten-free, nut free, dairy free, vegetarian or even vegan if you choose to. Here’s some ideas to help get you started all cut to fit into the eggs.
Lunch or Snack Ideas
- ham, turkey, chicken, pepperoni, sausage
- cheese sticks or cubes
- vegetables, fruit
- any kind of crackers that will fit, pretzels, chips
- dried fruit
- mini sandwich shaped with a small cookie cutter
- candy, chocolate
- cereal like cheerios
This is one of our favourite Easter traditions and fun for kids, grand kids, dayhome kids, daycare kids – any kid really!
