  • Carrots
  • Black sesame seeds or small pieces of black olives for eyes

Instructions:

  1. Peel the hard-boiled eggs.
  2. Cut a small piece off the wider end of the egg so it can stand up.

Tips for Cooking with Children

  • Prepare ahead of time: Measure out ingredients and set out equipment before you start.
  • Safety first: Teach children the importance of kitchen safety, including hand washing, use of knives and presence at the stove.
  • Make it fun: Let the kids decorate and be creative. It's ok if it gets a little messy!

These recipes are both simple and fun to make together with children. They also provide room for creativity, making cooking an even more enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
