Fabergé Easter Eggs
Peter 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.

Since 1878 the White House Easter Egg Roll has taken place on the South
Lawn. In 2010 President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are
continuing the Easter tradition, started by President Rutherford B. Hayes.
2010 Easter Egg Roll
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.
An Easter Egg hunt is a cool game for adults to organize for
children. Years ago it was something that parents did in their
downstairs rooms, nowadays it the Easter Egg Hunt has evolved into an
outdoor event for the whole neighbourhood.
Organization plus the greater expanse has created more creative
opportunities both for the egg hiding places and the clues to locate the
chocolate treasure. If you are the organizer try to make it as fun as
possible, the secret is to keep them them moving and keep them guessing.

Easter Bunny Footprints
Another 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 Story
Emma 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
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
