DIRECTIONS

  • Over the bowl, use the knife to cut a small to medium sized hole in the tip of the egg.
  • Turn the egg over and make a small hole in the opposite side.
  • Shake egg over the bowl, or blow through the small hole until all of the raw egg yolk and white has emptied out into the bowl.
  • Repeat with all eggs.
  • It is okay if the eggs crack or chip a little but try to keep them mostly intact.
  • Once all eggs have been emptied, rinse with water. Be sure they are clean without any remaining egg white or yolk.
  • Decorate the shells with paint, egg dye recipe #160383, glitter, etc. The more colorful and outrageous, the better!
  • Once eggs are dry, cut small squares of tissue paper and glue them over the small holes to seal them.
  • Using a funnel, or small spoon, fill the eggs with confetti or shredded paper through the larger hole.
  • Once an egg is full, pack a small tissue paper "puff" to plug the larger hole and seal it with glue.
  • Allow cascarones to dry and store in the egg carton to protect them.
  • Have fun hunting for and throwing cascarones, or sneaking up behind someone and cracking the cascarone over their head!
