I’ve posted about these in the past, but I thought I would write up more details.
Each Easter we go to a friend’s house for an afternoon dessert potluck and egg hunt. This is a different type of egg hunt. We make & hide cascarones, which we smash on each other as we find them. Our friends who host have kids in college, but everyone still loves to participate! A cascarone is an egg that is filled with bird seed.
Step 1: Save empty egg shells. We usually start a few months early. We carefully chip the end off the egg so that the shells can be filled.
Step 2: Decorate the egg shells. We like to write on the eggs with Sharpie (things like Smash on Parker), and then we dye them.
Step 3: Fill the eggs. We use bird seed. People will use rice or confetti, but we like to make sure it’s safe for all outside critters.
Here’s the finished product!!
