Cascarones: The All-Time Party Favors

[cascarones1.jpg]Eggs are a big part of celebrating Easter, whether it’s painting them, taking part in an egg hunt, or eating chocolate shaped eggs. Completing the egg theme is the tradition of surprising people by smashing a cascaron on their head! Cascarones are festive, colored, hallow eggshells, filled with confetti. Traditionally used during Easter celebrations in Mexico, cascarones are also used for other special occasions such as graduations or fiestas. It is said that having a cascaron broken on your head brings good luck. Just make sure it’s a cascaron you’re smashing on someone’s head and not a real egg (mistakes have been known to happen). Join in the fun by making your own cascarones at home using these simple instructions courtesy of About.com.

How to make cascarones:
• Make a small hole on top of a raw egg
• Carefully empty out the contents and thoroughly wash the inside
• Once the egg is dry, fill with confetti
• Seal the hole with brightly colored tissue paper
• You can choose to decorate or paint the egg

Tip: You can make yourself a yummy omelet with the egg contents you emptied out.
