Confetti Egg Game

If you don’t mind a little mess, why not turn your Easter eggs into cascarónes—blown-out eggs filled with confetti and then closed with tissue paper. Once the kids have found the hidden eggs, they can (gently) smash them over each other's heads. It’s said that having a cascarón broken over your head brings good luck! One of the eggs can contain gold glitter and whoever ends up covered in it gets a special prize. To make life easier, fill the eggs with birdseed instead of confetti and have nature do the cleanup for you.
