Just wanted to share a few non paper crafts that we worked on for Easter.... well I guess the eggs can be considered paper craft since there was confetti in them.  LOL

My Daughter Briana and my Son Luke  colored most of these in the first picture.

Every Easter since I can remember we have made these "Cascarones" or "Confetti eggs".  You start off by making a small hole on the tip of the egg, shake out the raw egg, rinse the egg shell & let dry.  We start collecting these eggs at the beginning of lent.  Anytime you use eggs in a recipe or just eat scrambled eggs you do this.  All of our family does this so by the time Easter is here we have many dozens.  We then color these eggs by hand with crayons or pencils We never dip in food coloring..don't know why...this is the way my grandma always did them.. Once they are all colored we fill them with confetti cover the tip with tissue paper so the confetti doesn't come out.  On Easter they all get passed out and the fun begins!!!!   Everyone runs around cracking them on each others head!  Its suppose to be some sign of good luck or something!! LOL  Don't really know what's lucky about getting cracked in the head with a hard eggshell !! LOL --but it is fun --Its just not Easter without them....my kids enjoy it!!

We had over 20 + dozens of eggs!!!!  It was fun but the clean up was not!!


  1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
