Inspired by Scrumdilly-Do!, we made cascarones for easter. Totally fun! You’re supposed to crush them over someone’s head but we were all a bit on the timid side for that. But they are great fun to smash and toss in the air. I think they need to become a tradition around here.
We died them with some of the left over kool-aid egg dye and filled them with freshly made hole punches. Had I thought ahead I would have just emptied all the hole punches as the office. There’s always next year.
Speaking of next year, I think these might become our new “plastic eggs”. After my last easter egg post, Kristin left a comment that has blown my socks off! She pointed out these and these made by Megan at Not Martha. Ummm…. yeah, I basically just did her “easy” version. The only thing I hadn’t done is sterilize the eggs which would be essential, but then I could add a few jelly beans or a tiny chick and walla! Child requested surprise on the inside of an egg fulfilled and mommies desired to leave the plastic eggs in the past fulfilled. Sounds like happiness all around. I can’t wait until next easter! (Oh, and her chocolate filled version? Those are several easters away. Several.)
