CLOSED Challenge #3: EASTER

Do you like the Easter eggs in that picture? They are pretty amazing! They are a type of Easter egg traditionally made in Ukraine called pysanky or pysanka. You can learn more about them, including how to make them, here.

Lots of people traditionally celebrate Easter, which commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, by decorating eggs. One explanation for why we decorate eggs is because the egg symbolizes new life (since baby chicks come from eggs), just like the new life we can have because of Christ’s resurrection.

There are a lot of problems in Ukraine right now, so a lot of people over there might be having trouble finding hope. Making pretty eggs may not seem important. So to show that we support them and to help them find hope again, let’s make some pysanky eggs! You can use the instructions in the link I gave above, or you can use a clear or white crayon and regular dyes if those materials seem hard to find.

If you live around here, show me the eggs you make. Every kid who does this before Easter (April 17th 2022) will get a prize!
