celebration eggs

2 emptied eggs with pin holes 3 paint egg with mod podge 4 mod podge confetti egg 5 confetti egg close in pink egg carton  confetti spilling out from broken egg

It is the time of year here when colors start to appear from the grey and brown landscape like confetti strewn along streams and parkways. I had a bag of confetti left over from New Year’s Eve, so I put it use for Easter, a celebration of new life.  Originally I planned to cover my eggs on the outside until I learned about cascarones: eggs that are filled on the inside with confetti.  Why not celebrate on the inside and the outside?  More fun: a game with Cascarones at Oh Happy Day!   The story goes that having a cascarón broken over your head will bring good luck.  Depending on how much confetti coverage you get, you will have disco eggs, which calls for a little disco duck.

Blowing out eggs from last year… this year I made lime custard with the empties!
