You can create deviled eggs with your toddler or preschooler following the no-clean-up plastic bag method (you could also use an egg cooker or egglette).

Easter Baskets. Easter baskets are a simple recipe that can be cooked with a toddler or preschooler. Easter baskets are created with a classic stove top oatmeal chocolate cookie recipe. Make the no bake cookies (recipe here) and instead of dropping the cookies onto waxed paper to harden, drop them into lightly greased muffin cups. Press into the cookie dough to create a sort of basket shape up the sides of the muffin cups. Once the cookies have set, remove them and add green-dyed coconut and jelly beans to create filled Easter baskets. Your toddler or preschooler will love filling the Easter baskets with the little Easter treats.
Cooking at any time with your toddler or preschooler is an adventure but also great fun and great for your child’s development. Take advantage of all the fun treats surrounding Easter and cook some of these tasty and fun Easter treats with your toddler or preschooler.
