Kidzworld Kitchen: Easter Eggs Galore

Apr 02, 2015

It’s the season for eggs and chocolate! Greet this fun spring holiday with some cute and unique recipe ideas. 

Devilled eggs are a classic snack that also make a great appetizer or breakfast. Give them a festive pastel facelift for the holidays with a bit of food coloring that will make a fun addition to any table.  Feel free to re-use this same idea with different colors for other occasions and sporting events.

The no-bake Easter nests are cute as a dessert, gift or can even be used as an imaginative place card at Easter dinner. Neatly write the names of dinner guests on slips of paper, tape a toothpick to the back and stick into the nests. Voila! Change them up and personalize by filling with your favorite candies, chocolates or even a marshmallow chick.

I'm 15 and a skinny person with a fat belly. On the other hand, my sister who is 14 has an athletic body. Does it make it weird?

Yep , agreed with other members. Just try to understand their situation, things get better just give them sometime. And you're thinking wrong, your parents even pay attention to you but they just don't show it. And doing things by your own isn't bad, even it's good habit. If you've any problem to do things of your own then you can tell your mom. I'm sure she'll help you. It'll get better! :)

Talk with your friends, ask them that what happened and why they're doing such weird things. I know it's quite annoying. Otherwise, you ignore them too. If you ignore them few days , they'll stop doing such idiotic things.

I think you should talk with a trusted adult or you can tell to your best friend's parents. If she bothers you again and too much then ignore her few days then she will stop this. I hope this'll work!
