Easter Celebrations

A favorite Easter tradition in the VALERIOTE household
is the annual Confetti Egg Smash. An event where hallowed
out, confetti filled eggs are broken over the heads of family,
friends and at times innocent bystanders. There is always
excitement in the weeks leading up to Easter as we begin
to collect hallowed eggs during meal preparation. The
competition is fierce as we wait to see who will bring the
largest basket filled with eggs and who will end up being
covered in the most confetti as the final egg bursts.
Guaranteed to fill your home laughter and your yard with
more confetti than a ticker tape parade.

CONFETTI EGGS
Use the back end of a spoon to crack open the top of an egg.
• • • •
Drain egg into a bowl.
• • • •
Rinse out hallowed egg shell and air dry.
• • • •
Dye, paint or cover eggs with tissue paper with water diluted glue.
Throw in a Halloween patterned egg just for fun!
• • • •
Air dry eggs completely.
• • • •
Fill eggs with confetti, money, fortunes, small toys, etc.
• • • •
Cut a piece of tissue paper slightly larger in size than the
egg's hole. Run a glue stick around the edges of the hole
and over one side of the paper; seal the hole by pressing
the paper firmly over the opening. Air dry.
Let the fun begin!

Wishing you all a fun filled Easter and a smashing good time!

Confetti eggs are a big part of celebrating here in TX. It's a custom from Mexico called cascarones. Fun but messy! :-) Happy Easter to you!

It always amazes me when I have a project on my mind, and a fellow artist has the project. Those are really cool!

LOL! I remember one year doing these with a couple of friends. The kids loved it and it was a lot of fun for us adults too!

Have a fabulous Easter.

Bright blessings,
