Deviled Egg Ships

While teaching your child about the pilgrims crossing the ocean on the Mayflower, a fun prop might be to make Deviled Egg Ships.

  1. Peel hard-boiled eggs and cut them in half lengthwise.
  2. Remove the yolks and have your child mash them in a bowl with some mayonnaise and a small amount of prepared mustard.
  3. Put the yolk mixture back in to the egg-white halves.
  4. Make sails for the ships by poking two small holes in a small square colored piece of paper. Stick a toothpick in one hole and out the other.
  5. Place the flags in the yolk mixture and sail away.
