|When you use
an egg for baking or anything else, instead of just cracking it, use a
knife or other sharp instrument to break a small, dime sized hole in the
small end. Pour the egg out of that hole.
Thoroughly wash the egg,
inside and out, with hot soapy water. Place on a paper towel to dry.
When they are all dry,
use egg dye to dye them bright colors. You can use masking tape to mark
off areas where you don't want dye for great designs.
When the eggs are dry, put
confetti in the eggs. Fill them about 1/4th full.
Cut a small circle out of
the tissue paper. Glue it over the opening. Or, you can cheat like I
do, just put masking tape over the opening.
Place them out just as you
do Easter Eggs.
The kids (and adults)
crack them over each other's heads.
Be sure to make enough.
It's so much fun. We usually make a dozen and a half per child, and a
dozen for each of the adults.
These aren't just for
Easter. The Mexican People use them for all kids of celebrations. Here
in San Antonio, they are used at Fiesta, Cinco De Mayo, Halloween and
