How to make Yoshi eggs

By Therobomom — October 08, 2012
Hey there! If you liked my “how to make cascarones” article, you will love this! I made confetti filled Yoshi eggs for my sons 5th birthday party and they were a total hit. I filled the “Yoshi eggs” with green confetti and decorated them. The kids at the party all received eggs and cracked them over my son’s head for “good luck”.  I think the super Mario party was definitely a fun theme that I could do again and again, because there are so many different ideas that you could play off of. Read on to find out how to make Yoshi eggs or any other type of confetti filled egg for your next party!

Get some confetti, any color, and some eggs...

crack a small hole in the eggs and reserve the fillings for another time, rinse all eggs and allow to dry.

Once they are dried, funnel some confetti into each one...

Cover the holes with glue and tissue paper and allow to dry.

Color the eggs using paint or a green permanent marker...

Display them in a nest or apothecary jar until you are ready to use them!
