Columbus Day Hard Boiled Egg Ship

Supplies Needed:
Pot for boiling
White Paper

#1:  Put the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan, covered by at least an inch or two of cold water. Starting with cold water and gently bringing the eggs to a boil will help keep them from cracking.
#2: As soon as the water starts to boil, remove the pan from the heat for a few seconds.
#3:  Reduce the heat to low, return the pan to the burner. Let simmer for one minute.
#4 :After a minute, remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let sit for 12 minutes.
#5: Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place them into a bowl of ice water
#6: Once cooled, strain the water from the eggs.
#7: Crack open the shell and cut in half
#8: Cut 4 little squares of white paper  (these will be the sails of the ship)
#9: Glue the little squares of white paper back to back on the toothpicks. Do this by sandwiching the toothpick between the two pieces of white paper.
#10: Stick the toothpicks into the hard boiled egg (your ship).
#11: Your Columbus Day Hard Boiled Egg Ship is ready to set sail!
