Easter egg pinata
These Easter egg 'pinatas' make a sweet Easter gift idea. Simply fill a decorated hand-blown egg with tiny M&Ms and watch the delight on your receivers face when they crack the shell! Pop the eggs into a pretty bag and tie with a ribbon for a cute gift wrap idea.
What you need:
- Blown eggs - follow instructions here
- A scalpel
- M&M minis
- Washi tape (or paint or small round stickers)
- Baking paper
Step 1. Gather all the tools and supplies required to make Easter egg pinatas.
Step 2. Hold one of the blown eggs and gently enlarge the hole you used to blow it by softly tapping the very edge of the hole with the scalpel. The egg shell around the hole should break away in little pieces, slowly enlarging the hole. Make it big enough to slip the M&Ms through.
Step 3. Carefully put the M&Ms into the egg.
Step 4. Cut up the washi tape into small triangles or other shapes. Place the washi tape shapes onto the smooth side of a sheet of baking paper so that they are easy for your kids to unpeel and stick onto the egg.
Step 5. Cover the large hole with the tape.
Step 6. Now, let your kids carefully stick the stickers all over the egg to decorate it! They could also paint the egg or use tiny stickers instead of the washi tape.
Step 7. Place the eggs into a small bag and have the recipient smash the egg shell to get their prize.
