The washi-taped eggs in my previous post were filled with confetti and hidden in the garden for a treasure hunt. This is a great way to enjoy an egg hunt without overloading the children with chocolate. In Mexico, where these originate, you're meant to bash them over each other's heads, but I was worried there might be tears, so J stepped in and the children queued up to bash the eggs over his head instead.
White and coloured tissue paper to make confetti
Skewer to break eggs
Use the skewer to break a hole in the bottom of the egg. Break the yolk inside too, to make it easier to pour out the egg, which can be used for cooking or baking.
Wash out the inside of the egg with hot water and leave to dry.
Use the hole punch to make lots of brightly coloured confetti.
Half-fill the eggs shells with confetti (I rolled up a piece of paper to use as a funnel)
Brush PVA glue around the outside of the hole and cover with a piece of white tissue paper
Leave to dry.
You can get an idea of the size of holes I made in the picture below.
