Celebrate Spring with a Cascarones Workshop

11:00 am
12:30 pm
Artist Marta Sanchez brings the Mexican tradition of Cascarones to Woodmere to celebrate the arrival of spring. Like an Easter egg, cascarones are decorative eggs that are used during festive times and celebrations. Children will decorate eggshells filled with confetti with paint, markers, and glitter to create their own Cascarones. Bring them home and enjoy the fun tradition of cracking the eggs over others' heads, a tradition that believes that as the confetti spills out from the eggshells, the cascarones will bring good luck.
