My now 4 year old loves to hang out in the kitchen. Inevitably, if there are eggs in view, he will pick one up, stare at it and daydream of throwing it at something. He usually asks 'Mom, can I break this? Can I throw this at something?' I take a deep breath and gently take the egg out of his hands before he decides to answer his own question.
In response to his longing for egging someone/thing, we threw him an Egg Birthday Party. It involved breaking/smashing over 100 eggs. We had a firing squad line-up of a select few egg producers. An owl, a chick, a rooster (ok, this one just hatched from an egg), a penguin, and a hen. There was also an alligator, but apparently that one needed saving for his bedroom decor.
We also had cascarones (confetti eggs). The child guests were floored and delighted over the activities.
The buffet table included marshmallow eggs, chocolate eggs, deviled eggs, malted eggs and egg shaped sugar cookies. The cake donned a ninja, because that has everything to do with eggs, right?
We ended the party with a parrot pinata!
Happy Birthday to my E-walker!
