Alternative Easter Craft: Cascarones.

http://www.dayspringacademy.org/mexico/photo/0406-13.jpg

I enjoy dying easter eggs (really, I do...), but I don't have a use for ALL those hard boiled eggs that come out of the project. I do, however, have plenty of use for breaking things over my friends' heads and making big confetti messes, so this year, I'm making cascarones- a Mexican tradition of decorative eggs that are hollowed (blown) and filled with confetti, which are subsequently broken over others' heads. Sound awesome? You're right.

Since I won't be creating mine until Holy Saturday, I thought I'd share this how-to from PBS Zoom that'll getcha started.
