How to Make Deviled Eggs with a 4-Year Old

We got Kiki a subscription to High Five magazine (part of Highlights) and she looks forward to getting it in the mail every month. We usually read it cover to cover several times (quick read) and there are always fun projects to do together.

So this time they had a "Make Deviled Eggs" project which I thought would be a lot of fun. Kiki loves hard boiled eggs (the only kid she will eat willingly) so this was a way to get her to eat some finally. It was so easy to do too. Here's the final result:

And here's the recipe:

You need: Eggs, Olives (black and green), Red Pepper, Mayo, Mustard, Salt & Pepper

Adults: Boil 4 eggs. Chop 1/2 sweet red pepper and some olives into very small pieces

1. Peel hard-boiled eggs and cut in half. Remove yolks and mash them.
2. Add 1.5 tbsp mayo, .5 tsp mustard, .25 cup red pepper, salt & pepper to taste.
3. Put olive pieces in egg whites and top with yolk mixture.
4. Decorate with remaining olive and red pepper pieces.
