Part of Easter is decorating Easter Eggs. I haven’t found any free events, but there are some interesting ones that are not too expensive.
Eggs have long been symbols of the rebirth of the earth, of Spring. In Christian tradition, they represent the resurrection of Jesus.
Children colour and paint chicken eggs. The “Easter Bunny” hides real or chocolate eggs for children to find and eat.
On April 10 and 17, from 2pm-6pm in Toronto, the Pysanka Workshop has a fundraiser for an orphanage in the Ukraine. It’s on learning how to make those beautiful traditional Ukrainian Easter eggs. The lesson costs $10 and is at 2199 Bloor St. West, 2nd floor.
On April 9-10, 16-17, and 23-24, from noon to 4pm, Colborne Lodge in High Park has an egg-colouring event and an egg hunt. It’s free with the regular admission: adults $5.71, seniors and youth (13-18 yrs) $2.62, and children 4-12 years $2.38 – plus tax. Tel. 416-392-6916 for more information. High Park subway station.
