An Egg-citing Spring Family Event

How do you like your eggs? This month, join in to help the South County Museum make a special kind of egg you won’t find on any menu. In preparation for SCM’s Spring Family Event on April 3rd, we’re making confetti eggs — yes, they are as fun as they sound! Follow the tutorial below from arts and crafts master and fellow SCM supporter Sarah Abbruzzese to learn how to prepare your eggs!

These awesome eggs have a unique and global history. The concept of filling egg shells with a special gift first appeared in Asia and was eventually brought to Italy and Spain by the explorer Marco Polo. The eggs were often given as gifts and were filled with perfumed powder. They arrived in Mexico in the mid-1800’s thanks to the Emperor Maximilian’s wife. In Mexico, the powder was replaced with confetti and the confetti egg was born! Today, confetti eggs— or cascarones as they are known in Spanish— are part of Mexican Carnival celebrations, when communities commemorate the season before Lent with parades, rich food, and colorful costumes. 

The funnest part about confetti eggs is surprising a friend with a shower of confetti on their head— which, according to tradition, may even bring them good luck!

So, as you eat your way through your next dozen eggs, set aside the shells each time. When you finish the carton, bring them along to the museum, where we will fill the eggs with tons of colorful confetti! With your help, come Family Day we’ll have a huge supply for the kids to find in an egg-stra special edition of SCM’s Egg Hunt!

Help the children have a blast at our Spring Family Event and get cracking!
