Quick easy food for children – soft boiled eggs

Soft Boiled eggs  zillycreate.wordpress.com

I’m always keen on quick, easy and cheap food to cook for and with my kids so when Lacy (2yrs) requested “eggs” for lunch I was more than happy to comply.
Not much is easier than soft boiled eggs with toasted “soldiers”.

I’m trying to incorporate Lacy and Aniya into everyday cooking (not just baking) but with such a simple recipe there wasn’t much for them to do. We did talk about the noise the pot made once the water was boiling and watched the egg timer…

Cost: not much as our eggs come from our chickens and the bread was homemade.

Time: 10 mins

Age: 1 year + (1-12 year olds will need help with the stove and toaster)

Taught: concept of ‘boiling’, patience and using a timer.

What's On the Tray Today? Recycled Snipping

I’m into being cheap, I mean recycling so today’s cutting practise was an recycled catalogue cut into strips. On some strips thick lines were drawn for a cutting guide. A big mess was made but much fun was also had by Lacy and Aniya (2 years 9 months).
