Cascarones, pronounced kas-ka-ron-ez, are a Mexican tradition used for Easter, Cinco de Mayo and other celebrations. It is an egg shell filled with confetti used to crack over someone's head and shower them with the confetti inside. It might sound strange, but it's actually really fun. Children and adults can both enjoy running around and smashing eggs on their friends' or family's heads.

Step 1: Materials Needed

You Will Need:

-At least a dozen empty egg shells (of course, the more eggs the better!)
-paper confetti
-tissue paper
-egg dying kit (optional)
Finally, I keep 4 chickens and had no Idea what to do with the abundance of eggs I've got. there's cupboards full of pickled ones, We have a cooked breakfast every day, but they just keep coming.<br><br>A solution has been found, I wonder what else I could fill these with to add an extra surprise?...evil mind working away....of course, I could pretend to have made these, but just leave the eggs raw...maybe even in the windowsill for a few weeks....The girlfried would think this is really funny in her hair :-)
I've also heard of putting small toys in the eggs. Or maybe you can put candy :-)<br><br>Cascarones are super fun, but the confetti stays in the hair for days lol. I have long hair, and I can never get it all out in one day.
<p>small toys would probaly hurt</p>
maybe she would forgive you if you put a ring or something else equally nice inside the egg!<br> most women these days appreciate electronic devices too except I don't know which of them will fit in an egg!<br> since your evil mind is working so well! maybe someones(me) not so evil mind is trying to think of ways to get you out of trouble!<br> good luck!<br>Mary-blueangelcat
<p>just dye eggs and glue tissue paper and say <strong>hey a casarone </strong></p>
<p>ps what else can you use instead of eggshells</p><p>maybe plastic eggs i dont want to use real shells and hurt someone</p>
<p>*evil laugh* i will use dyed eggs with the egg still inside. *evil laugh*</p>
<p>XD lol! Sounds like something I would do! :D</p>
I'm going to use the bird seed method for airsoft games as grenades! :)
My family made these growing up, with bird seed instead of confetti- insisted by my mom, which solved the confetti mess issue, and made it enjoyable for the birds too!
I made these but I dyed the eggs first &amp; blew the contents out by making one very small and one larger hole. I filled them with flour and let the boys go crazy in the yard! The egg shells are good for the soil and the flour is gone in a couple of days! You can also freeze the eggs in silicon cupcake molds, unmold and keep for a month or 2 airtight.
We made these in Spanish class today.
