Egg carton lunch snacks

Today I'm sharing with you one of my favorite Easter "snacktivities"! If you have kids like mine who love to make their own snacks and lunches, this is perfect. Give them all the control—let them fill their eggs with whatever they want (selecting from the options you give them, of course!), and enjoy an easy, festive lunch together. Or, for school-age kids, pack this as a surprise in their lunchbox the week before Easter.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
1 egg carton
6 plastic eggs
Your favorite lunch foods

HOW TO MAKE IT
1. Have your child separate eggs in half and place them inside the egg carton.
2. Together, fill each egg piece with one of your favorite lunch items. Some foods that work well are grapes, nuts, mini cheese sticks, carrots, raisins, Goldfish crackers, strawberry slices—and a sweet dessert such as jelly beans.
3. Enjoy lunch together out of your egg carton!
