How to Make Mexican Cascarones How to Make Mexican Cascarones #confettieggs

Cascarones are confetti eggs that have a long history but since the Mexicans were attributed with filling them with confetti, I’m giving them all the credit! These things are fun and so much quieter than the firecracker-esque pop toys my kids always want, so this year I decided to make some of our own.

I know what you’re thinking…where’s the how-to? Come back here at 1 p.m. CST, today, March 15th, and hangout with me as I make a few of these toys LIVE in the final hangout of Easter Hangout Week! See ya then!

If you can’t make it for the live taping be sure to visit my Youtube page and watch the video at your leisure. You’ll also be able to find the recording in my Google+ feed.

Also going on this Friday: 

I'm guest posting over at Love Bakes Good Cakes where I'm sharing one of my absolute favorite things to make when I am in desperate need of some comfort food, Dump Cake!

  1. I'm laughing but embarrassed because before this I thought Cascarones was a type of Mexican food I didn't know about. See what I learn from your site?!

  2. I would love for you to link up activities like this that teach children about other languages and cultures at my weekly link-up "Say it Two Ways Thursdays". Link up at It Two Ways Thursdays.


Thank you for leaving a comment, it really means a lot to me!
