Children from both the church and community celebrated a glorious spring morning with an Easter Egg Hunt at the church and a variety of other activities, including of a six-foot Easter Bunny.
Following the egg hunt throughout the church, the children were introduced to egg-dyeing, coloring, mural-painting, flower potting, and pinata breaking. There clearly was something for everyone, of all ages.
In addition to the traditional dipping of eggs into colored dyes, children also were given the opportunity to wrap eggs with remnants of old neckties and then watched as they were placed in boiling water and vinegar. When the eggs were removed from the water bath and the fabric was removed, the colorful designs of the neckties were transferred to the shells of the eggs.
With the pinata, it took whacks from more than a dozen children for the butterfly to finally break and spill its contents on the floor.
Thank you to the Rev. Ruth Morrison and all the adults who assisted to making this Easter event possible and such a success!
