Cascarones (confetti-filled egg shells) are just that! Egg shells filled with confetti or other treats. This is a very popular tradition in Mexico. It is said that once an eggshell is broken on your head releasing the confetti it is considered to be good luck. The tradition also says that you gift the egg to someone and, then you crush it over their heads.
Since we’re hosting an Easter & Spring playdate at our local playground I thought it would be a great idea to give them “cascarones!” Instead of making the traditional “cascarones” I decided to make Easter “cascarones” with a twist!
¡Felices Pascuas! Happy Easter!

Rice is actually a bad idea as the birds will eat it and it will inflate their stomachs and kill them one reason why they do not use rice at weddings anymore.
Hello! I do appreciate your concern. However, I did an on-line search, and most seem to agree that the above statement is a myth, and not true: http://mentalfloss.com/article/31421/does-wedding-rice-really-make-birds-explode Thank you!
Oh my goodness this looks like so much fun and I love the vibrant colors you got. I'm going to have to try the hand sanitizer trick!
