How to make confetti eggs for Easter and Cinco de Mayo.
Hey crafty friends! The kids are officially on Spring break and they couldn’t be more excited. Since I’m headed to Utah next week, missing part of their break, I’m going to squeeze in as many fun activities for us to do until then. Homemade play dough, flying kites, and picnics at the park are definitely in order. I’m also surprising them with a day trip to the ocean in a few days, I can’t wait to see their faces when we arrive. The little guy is going to be excited to play in the sand and collect seashells., while the big kids will more than likely spend hours on the boardwalk rides.
Before we can start planning all of those things I’m still focused on getting things ready for our Easter celebration. Every year, for as long as I can remember, growing up my mother would make confetti eggs for Easter. We have some pretty funny pictures of surprising family members with confetti eggs getting cracked over their heads. My sister seems to get me every year when I least expect it. It’s always a great way to enjoy a few laughs and who doesn’t love colorful confetti?
Food coloring, vinegar, water
tissue paper in various colors
Step one: carefully puncture the top of the egg with a sharp object. You will need about a 1/2 inch hole to fill the eggs. I used a kabob skewer to crack the eggs and gently mixed the egg yolk to help release it from the shell. Wash hallowed eggs thoroughly with soap.
Step two: dye eggs with kit or 1 cup water, 1 tbsp vinegar, and food coloring. Allow eggs to dry.
Step three: fill eggs with confetti.
Step four: cut a 3/4 inch square of tissue paper and glue to cover the hole.
These DIY confetti eggs are fun for the whole family to enjoy and guaranteed to bring a few laughs. They’re also great for a Cinco de Mayo celebration.
