DIY Glitter and Confetti Smash Eggs

If you're looking for a fun Easter egg activity that doesn't involve candy, we highly recommend you consider making smash eggs [166], also known as confetti eggs or cascarones.

The idea is simple: hollowed-out, refilled eggs are broken over the heads of friends, showering them with confetti . . . and, according to tradition, good luck. Kids might need some simple instructions and oversight (egg-smashing etiquette requires eggs to be broken directly on a person's head — it sounds rough, but it actually makes for a gentler and safer experience). Jordan Ferney from Oh Happy Day [167] shared photos of her amazing glitter and Fruity Pebbles eggs with us. Want to make your own? Follow her easy DIY instructions [168]!

Nature-Inspired Eggs

Use leaves or flowers to create a unique natural design [254]. Place your chosen found objects on the outside of an egg, and slip it into pantyhose, tightly securing the hose with a knot. Lower the egg into your chosen color. Leave eggs in the dye until you've achieved your desired brightness, then remove.
