In Mexico, many festival days, holidays, and saint day celebrations involve the making and smashing of cascarones. Introduce your child to this fantastic custom by creating your own!
Cascarones begin with an everyday egg shelll that is filled with confetti. The true art of cascarones, however, is the smashing technique! Most people crush them in their hands over someone's head, allowing the confetti to cascade downward upon their victims. In an all-out cascarones fight, people throw them hard on the ground near someone's feet in hopes that the burst of confetti showers upon their victims.
