Easter Eggs – painting fun time

As Polish tradition on Holy Saturday we prepare special Easter baskets. The baskets contain eggs, bread, meat, salt, horseradish and a figure of lamb made of sugar or cake, which represent the Lamb of God – Jesus Christ, then we take it  to the  catholic church where a priest blesses it with holy water. On Holy Sunday we eat the contents of the baskets.

Coloured  and decorated eggs are the symbol of Easter. Each Easter I put egg into boiling onion decoction to make a nice brown colour. You can put some elastic bands to make some nice prints. This year we decided to paint eggs. Kids loved it.  I am feeling Easter family time…..precious time.

Have a look and enjoy our coloured Easter Egg with us!

Happy Easter!
