Cascarones or Confetti Eggs
Are your older children getting tired of finding the same old hard-boiled eggs? Are you sick of lots of left-over plastic Easter eggs with no where to put them? Well, here's a great way to change up your holiday and make every pre-tween, tween and pre-teen WANT to hunt eggs again! Make Cascarones!
Cascarones, or confetti eggs are an Easter tradition usually practiced in border towns and throughout the southwest. They throw the confetti eggs at celebrations, particularly at Easter. If one breaks above your head it's said to bring you good luck. (Note ABOVE your head, not cracking on your head.)
HOW TO MAKE CASCARONES:
First, you blow out the egg. If you chip out a slightly-smaller-than-dime-sized hole in the bottom of the egg, then make a small pin hole at the top, the eggs can be easily blown out.
