For a little background to tell the kids- in this part of the world, easter marks the start of spring. To celebrate the cold winter days ending, they decorate their trees with as many bright colours as they can!


Material

  • 1 Tree branch
  • 1 tube White poster paint
  • Easter decorations

Method

  1. Sit down with the kids to make some pretty easter decorations. You can draw and colour in your own easter eggs, make painted eggs by blowing the yolk out of the real eggs, or tie ribbon around actual easter eggs.
  2. Paint the tree branch white (or whatever colour you choose). Allow to dry. While drying, make the decorations.
  3. Fill a vase with scrunched up paper and stand branch in vase. Take turns hanging decorations from the 'tree'

  • I do something similar to this every year in my classroom. At the beginning of Lent we each make a caterpillar, out of thick pipe cleaners etc and write a Lenten promise. At easter the kids love to come in to the room to see what has happened……I then change the caterpillars into butterflies! (I buy them from spotlight) we then decorate with eggs like above.
