Hi Friends! To add a little extra fun and a few more surprises to Easton’s Super Mario Birthday Party I created a cute Yoshi Egg Hunt for him. This past Easter I made a surprise Easter egg hunt doorstep drop-off for our friends and it was a lot of fun! So I decided a similar Yoshi egg hunt would be a great activity for Easton to do on his birthday. When he first walked into the backyard he saw that Yoshi had landed in a hot air balloon and left a note that said he hid his eggs in the yard. (This printable Yoshi poem is a free download in the Printable Library, Party Printables section.) He was so excited! It was so sweet to watch him race around the yard looking for all of Yoshi’s eggs. Also, after the egg hunt is over you can arrange the eggs around the party and they double as adorable party decorations!
The Yoshi eggs are really easy to make. You will need Jumbo Plastic Eggs, acrylic paint, and gifts to put inside them. First, start buy removing the plastic handle from the Jumbo Plastic Eggs.
Next paint the entire plastic egg with white acrylic paint and allow it to dry completely. Then, paint large green spots on the egg. (I blended green, yellow and white acrylic paint together to try to get the spots the right green “Yoshi egg” shade.)
Then, fill the eggs with any gifts or surprises you’d like and hide them in the yard! How fun!
