How I understand it is that electrons are particles because everything made is made up of particles, and an abundance of those particles would create a sort of wave, electromagnetic wave. This is actually known as the wave=particle duality, where the idea came from famous scientists, such as Einstein, Planck, Broglie, etc.
Essentially everything has both normal particle properties and wave properties. It's just that the larger particles have such small wavelengths that they are basically not identifiable, which is seen through the de Broglie equation. That's why even a baseball has wave properties, but they are so small that it's insignificant.
