When I was a middleschooler, every spring saw a wave of glitter and confetti filled eggs beign brought to school to smash over firends heads. Its was a hilarious, and messy tradition and we all loved it. And because I have a glitter loving little girl, I knew she would love these, and so will your kiddos! These can be made with or without the sticks. The stick make them easier to carry but without you have less chance of glitter leaking out en route. Either way they are barrels of fun!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Tissue paper
- Hot glue
- Small, metal knitting needle
- Glitter and/or small confetti
- Thin dowels (optional)
1. Bore a small hole in the bottom on each egg and another in the top. Carefully blow the contents of the egg out into a bowl. Rise the inside of each egg with warm water and allow them to dry.
2. Dab a small amount of hot glue into the top hole of the egg and slightly enlarge the bottom home (don’t worry if it seems kind of big, you’ll be covering it up!)
3. Fill the egg with glitter and/or confetti.
4. Tie lengths of ribbon onto the stick, use a mix of ribbons for a more festive look!
5. Glue a piece of tissue paper over the hole in the egg and, if using the sticks, insert the dowel through the tissue paper carefully. Apply hot glue around the hole and then slide the ribbons up to cover it to seal the hole up.
6. If you are not using the sticks, glue the ribbons directly to the bottom of the egg.
7. Find someone to smash the egg over and let the fun begin!
