Easter Egg Painting Party

The Easter Bunny

There's a story quite funny,
About a toy bunny,
And the wonderful things she can do;
Every bright Easter morning,
Without warning,
She colors eggs, red, green, or blue.

Some she covers with spots,
Some with quaint little dots,
And some with strange mixed colors, too
-- Red and green, blue and yellow,
But each unlike his fellow
Are eggs of every hue.

And it's odd, as folks say,
That on no other day
In all of the whole year through,
Does this wonderful bunny,
So busy and funny,
Color eggs of every hue.

If this story you doubt
She will soon find you out,
And what do you think she will do?
On the next Easter morning
She'll bring you without warning,
Those eggs of every hue.

M. Josephine Todd, 1909

A typical Swiss activity before Easter is egg painting with your children. If you think it sounds messy, it is great fun and is actually very easy with today's specialized egg paints that you can pick up in any Coop, Migros or other supermarket.

Should you wish for some advice, Robin from ALL FOR KIDS will come to your rescue. She hosts an Easter Egg Painting Party for parents and kids every year - and this year it will be Saturday March 31st, 2012 from 13:00-18:00.
