I hosted a little toddler egg dyeing party this Saturday. We had so much fun! We had eight kids and their parents here for egg dyeing, an egg hunt, and lunch. The kids are so cute together and play so well; everyone seemed to have a great time. I’ve been saving rain and spring party ideas for a while, so it was fun to put them all to good use. My favorite are the tissue puffs with the rain drops, and the umbrellas as take-homes. I really wished I gotten a pic of the kids with their umbrellas, but I was so busy having a good time I didn’t snap many pictures!
I served egg salad and beet salad sandwiches along with homemade pickles, some snacks and PB&J for the kids; and the chocolate egg nests for dessert. This is my tried and true egg salad recipe I dice the onion and red pepper and add it to the mix. And here’s my beet salad recipe (if you like beets, you must try it!):
Beet Salad Sandwich Recipe
8 small roasted or marinated beets (I get the prepackaged kind from Trader Joe’s), diced
6 oz crumbled feta
1 T mayo
1 t dijon
1 T diced onion
2T fresh chopped parsley
pepper to taste (the feta makes it plenty salty)
Combine all and serve on toasted bread.
