After the Bad Easter Eggs, We Have the Good Easter Eggs
Fabergé Easter EggsPeter Carl Fabergé original name Carl Gustavovich Fabergé [1846 - 1920] was a Russian jeweller, best known for the famous Fabergé eggs, made in the style of genuine Easter eggs, but using precious metals and gemstones rather than more mundane materials, each egg is about 5 inches tall and depicts a different event or theme in Russia's history. He was commissioned to create the first egg for the twentieth wedding anniversary of Tsar Alexander III and his wife Maria Feodorovna, of Russia, in 1885. Every subsequent Easter, another egg was made for Maria as a gift from her husband. After the passing of Alexander III, his son took up the tradition presenting his wife and his mother with their own custom Fabergé egg every Easter. In all, 50 eggs were commissioned; to this day eight are still missing. This is the Coronation Egg, which features the coach that Empress Alexandra rode into Moscow in 1897. President Obama and the First Lady have announced that this year's White House Easter Egg Roll will be held on Monday, April 5, 2010 with the theme of "Ready, Set, Go!" promoting health and wellness. The event will feature live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling. All of the activities will encourage children to lead healthy and active lives and follow the First Lady's 'Let's Move!' initiative, a national campaign to combat childhood obesity. The White House will open its South Lawn for children aged 12 years and younger and their families. 2009 Easter Egg Roll The theme for 2009 is "Let's Go Play", clearly setting an example for children to more active pursuits. This is the first year when people can apply for tickets online. We do hope that President Obama's daughters Malia and Sasha will take part in the White House Easter Egg Roll on April 13th.
Easter Bunny FootprintsAnother twist for your Easter egg hunt is to use bunny footprints to give the children clues where to look for the eggs.
Memorable Easter Egg Hunt StoryEmma and Tony thought it would be cool to give their toddlers a special Easter egg hunt. Firstly, Emma hit upon the idea of sprinkling talc on the wooden floor, then using the bunny footprints, they created a trail in the talcum powder. In the lounge Tony not only placed carrots at strategic points, but also gnawed them to look like the rabbits had been there. One neat touch was to leave a spilt saucer of milk in the kitchen. This Easter bunny scene was so realistic that on Easter Sunday morning their children Ken and Lizzy rushed into our bedroom, screaming: 'the Easter bunny has been'. Over the years the story has been relived and embellished, 20 years on I am not sure who is the more embarrassed the parents, or the now grown-up children.
