How to make an egg chicken

January 4, 2009

in characters,how-to

Today’s how-to is something very basic you can make with a boiled egg. It’s so easy that I don’t even know if I need to do a how-to on this, but this definitely is the simplest & easiest way to turn an ordinary egg into a cute chicken in under 3 minutes!

I made this for my very first kyaraben-ish bento, and Farm bento. But I made it even simpler so that you only need three ingredients.

[How to make a chicken with a boiled egg] (used in “Farm bento” )
- hard-boiled egg
- carrot
- seaweed (or black sesame seeds)
– hole punch

1. Slice a carrot and cut it into shapes like the picture.

These will be chicken beak and crown.

2. Make a small incision on top of the egg and front.

3. Insert the carrot on the top for its crown and in the front for its beak.

4. Using a hole punch, cut two circles out of seaweed, and put them on the egg.

This chicken is so ready to jump into your bento!

Sorry today’s how-to is not much of how-to, but I’m in the midst of apartment hunting, so my weekend is (and will be) pretty hectic! My ideal apartment? MORE COUNTER SPACE in the kitchen! :)

You can see more pictures of “How to make an egg chicken” on my flickr page.
And if you have any questions about any of my how-to’s, please feel free to leave a comment or email me!

I’ve meant to do this a long long time ago, but never got around it ^^U

I wanted to thank you for this tutorial in particular, because in my Speech class from last year I made a presentation about making bento, and used the egg-chicken as a live example. Everyone loved it a lot and asked for information (I think I gave this website to at least 4 people) and got an A. Just so you know making bento is educational too ^^ thank you!
