Mulitcultural Art: German Easter Trees

Easter was the focus for the children's Multicultural Art Lessons this week. In fact Easter Egg Trees from Germany. I wasn't aware of this tradition so went a googling. I didn't find a great deal of information though, this article discusses the Easter Trees and another here has a little video.

These have been painted on a canvas and are now hanging on the wall with our Easter Garland they'll be fabulous to use year after year and we will continue to add to our display for Easter.

The background and trees are painted, the children then drew egg shapes on construction paper, painted them and glued them to their trees.

This is wonderful. I live in Germany now...and really haven't thought of posting about it. Yes, almost every household/business/city fountain have this as an Easter decoration.

It's quite cute for decorations...Yes, their artwork is Lovely!! ;)
