E is for Egg Boat!

E is for Egg Boats!

This Glorious Red Monday we will be making Egg Boats.


  1. Boil 6 eggs in water

  2. Boiling 6 eggs
  3. Peel hard boiled eggs
  4. Cut in half

  5. 2 halves of a hard boiled egg
  6. Remove yolk
  7. Mix with mayonnaise, salt, pepper to desired consistency and taste
  8. Cut 2 paper triangles
  9. Tape them to toothpicks
  10. Sails for egg boat
  11. Put yolk mixture into the empty holes in the egg halve. I added a little paprika to one of mine for colour.
  12. Put sail at the fat end of the egg

  13. Finished egg boats
  14. Sail egg boat into your mouth

  15. sail away

What do you think?

  1. What happens to the egg when it is boiled?
  2. Do brown eggs look different inside than white eggs?
  3. Can you cut a raw egg in half?
  4. What does half mean?
  5. What are the 2 parts of the egg?
  6. What is the colour of each part?
  7. What do eggs have that is good for us?
  8. Where do eggs come from?
  9. How can you tell the difference between hard boiled eggs and raw eggs when the are still in their shells? (you can spin a hard boiled egg, a raw egg will wobble)

Try this!

  1. Write Ee for egg of the paper sails before you tape them to the toothpick
  2. Enjoy your egg boats

You may notice that my eggs are shades of brown.
I gather them throughout the day from my flock.
You may also notice that the yolks of my egg is a different shade of yellow than yours is, if yours is store bought.
That is because my chickens are free range, or in other words they are allowed to eat what chickens naturally would eat; grass, weeds, snails, worms, slugs. (sounds gross, but the last three are excellant sources of protein.)

I hope you had an Energetic Red Monday!
