Heart-Boiled Eggs

To make these adorable eggs you’ll need an egg carton, a chopstick, a rubber band, and four pieces of thin cardboard folded into V-shapes. For easier peeling, make sure to boil eggs that are a week old. Once they’re finished cooking, dunk the eggs in cold water and peel them quickly while they’re still warm.
