Hatch some fun: Crack confetti-filled hollow eggs over friends' heads in celebration of the new year. The confetti that comes pouring out signifies all the good days to come.

Materials

  • Eggs
  • Bowl
  • Confetti
  • Scissors
  • Tissue paper
  • Glue

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Crack open the tops of raw eggs. Drain the contents into a bowl, and save for another purpose. Wash out the shells, and let dry completely.

  2. Step 2

    Buy confetti at a craft store, or make your own with a hole punch and construction paper. Fill shells one-third full with confetti, about 2 tablespoons per egg.

  3. Step 3

    Cut circles out of tissue paper to cover the holes. Run a thin line of glue around hole, and affix tissue-paper circle.

    Dear Martha, these eggs originated in Guatemala. They are painted in many different colors and used to celebrate Carnival.
    Have a wonderful new year!!!
