Step 1: Pick an Egg

The next time your family cooks an egg, carefully cut a small hole in one end of the egg with a knife or fork and a larger hole on the other side.

Step 2: Blow out the Egg

If you are making confetti filled eggs with your children, they will love to blow the egg out into a bowl, just make sure to use the egg and don’t waste it.

Step 3: Clean the Egg

Use a solution of water and dish cleaner to clean the inside of the egg thoroughly. You can dye the egg first if you wish – I decided to leave them brown.

Step 4: Dry the Egg

I placed each egg on a chopstick inside of a glass and let them drive completely overnight.

Step 5: Punch the Confetti

Using a hole punch, punch a nice size of confetti using paper from your recycling bin. (I used old greeting cards!)

Carefully add the confetti to the egg, you can also use eco-friendly glitter if you have it.

Step 7: Seal the Egg

Use a small dab of glue to secure a scrap of tissue paper to the larger hole on the egg, let it dry completely.

Step 8: Surprise Your Child

When your child isn’t suspecting it, crack them on the head with a confetti egg! It will have a larger impact if they see you coming with the egg. Ha!
