never too old

Today my sister and I prepared for the Annual easter egg hunt, also known as the easter egg massacre, and made Cascarones (confetti eggs)!!

We've made these since we were little and it's not a Easter Egg hunt without them!
To make Cascarones you...
1. want to dye the eggs. We just bought the egg dye from the store

2. let them dry

3. fill with confetti!

4. apply glue to the top of the egg

5. cover the top of the eggs with tissue paper

Ta-Da! Cascarones are complete and are ready for hiding and seeking and smashing!

It's said to be good luck when you break it over someone's head, but we smash it over the other's head so I don't know if that counts.
I'm nervous because tomorrow is suppose to be a rainy day so fingers crossed it's not and we can enjoy the good luck we will be spreading with those eggs!

Here was a picture from last year's EEM

I hope you get to hunt for eggs and I hope that if you don't this year, that you get to make cascarones next year! Also, keep in mind, you're never to old to hunt for eggs


  1. Yes, I agree, you are never too old to do a tradition, no matter what it is. I love how you and your sister do this!

    Happy Easter!

  2. I've never heard of this before! Sounds wonderful!!! And way better then just looking for hard boiled eggs!

  3. Have fun today and Happy Easter! Love the new blog look btw!

  4. I think that is such a fun egg idea! I hope I can remember this idea and do it next year.

    Happy Easter

  5. Yay! I had never heard of cascarones until i moved to Texas, I love it! The kids at my school were smashing them all day!

  6. I love the color of those eggs! I am so making those next year!

  7. Very cool!!

    You obviously empty the eggs...right? so what do you do with all those egg yokes?

    **Yes the eggs are empty. My mom started saving the eggs she would have for breakfast for a month so we could use them for Easter! We never have wasted an egg!
