This week we have been doing lots of activities around the Christian celebration Easter....we have been making our own mod-rock egg cups and decorating them using the Pysanky art of decorating eggs at Easter. Pysanky is a Ukraine tradition at Easter time and is the art of decorating your egg with a meaning depending on the design you choose....

We are also making our own Easter palm crosses using green sugar paper and we have been looking closely at Palm Sunday.

Here are a few of us taking parts in some of the activities...

You can watch the method of making an Easter palm cross here...all you need is a piece of long thin paper!
