Cascarones or Confetti eggs have been a part of our Easter festivities for many years. We love making them, decorating them, & of course cracking them on each others heads. Learn how to make cascarones for yourself. It’s easy & so fun!
This is an updated version of a craft that I posted in 2013. I thought it was one that many of you may have missed and since it’s such a fun Easter activity, I’m re-sharing it today. The pictures have been updated but the rest of the post remains the same. Hope you love this craft as much as we do!
My mom has been making these confetti eggs or cascarones for years. Each year she brings or sends us a few dozen of these to us. We always take them to the Easter egg hunt on the other side of the family. They get hidden along with all the other eggs (real and plastic).
So while all the hunters (from babies to mid 30s) are hunting, there is the fun of throwing and cracking confetti eggs on all your cousins, brothers, sisters, and in-laws (and even sometimes your aunts, parents and grandparents).
So this year, I asked mom to teach me how to make them.
How to Make Cascarones aka Confetti Eggs
What you’ll need:
food coloring and vinegar (optional)
crepe paper (spring colors or whatever you have at hand)
markers (or you can paint them but since my kids are little we only use markers)
You need to crack your eggs close to the top of one end. My mom uses a butter knife and then uses that knife to help clean out the egg under running water. (I need more practice at this part.)
I let my kids help a little with the stuffing but they love decorating the eggs with markers after they are stuffed and lidded.
These are completely biodegradable unlike a lot of the ones you can buy at the store especially those with glitter. So you don’t have to worry about cleaning up your yard afterwards.
What fun things do you do at Easter?
