Easter is right around the corner, so I thought I’d repost our Mexican Cascarones Sensory Tray to show you a new fun and easy way of playing with eggs. Cascarones are really for breaking over each other’s heads, and can be so much fun for all ages!
I found these gems in Texas at Hobby Lobby. They are basically blown out eggs (which just leaves the shell) filled with confetti. The idea comes from Mexico, which is why I could easily find them in Texas. I’m not sure how easy they are to find nationally, so here’s a link to make your own.
I couldn’t pass these up when I saw them, and I knew instantly that they belonged in a sensory tray for J!
Here’s the invitation for J. I just placed the Cascarones in an empty egg container and then inside his sensory tray.
This was a fun activity that’s great for fine motor skills, concentration, and problem solving. He had fun with it, but most of the time he was very focused on breaking into those egg shells!
This is an activity I highly recommend!
J is 20 months old.

I love how you used the confetti eggs! They do make a lovely sensory bin. I couldn’t find them locally here ,but ordered some, and they arrived in the mail today. I can’t wait for Rosie to get into them 🙂
I still want to find those. My girls would love those.
I never thought to use them in a sensory bin. What a great idea! I didn’t realize you were in TX too. I’m in Austin, and cascarones are an Easter staple here too. I didn’t realize they were blown out eggs. I may make my own set next year since I mastered the art of egg blowing this year. =)
These look like so much fun! I’m doing an Easter link up today over on my blog…http://rustsunshine.blogspot.com. Would love it if you joined us!
