5 Crazy Easter Traditions

5 Crazy Easter Traditions

 

  1. In Haux France one easter tradition is to have a giant omelet served in town square it feeds up to a thousand people and uses four thousand five hundred eggs. The story behind it was that when napoleon was traveling through france he and his army ate omelets. Napoleon decided that he liked them so much he had ordered the townspeople to make a giant omelet for his army the next day.
  2. On the greek island of Corfu an easter tradition is to throw out all the pots and pans and flower pots from their windows on easter sunday. It is said that the tradition came from the venetians who on new year’s day used to throw out all their old items. Others say that it is symbolized as throwing all the plants out that will grow during spring.
  3. On Holy Thursday in the Medieval town of Verges, Spain, the traditional “dansa de la mort” or “death dance” is performed. To reenact scenes from The Passion, everyone dresses in skeleton costumes and parades through the streets. The procession ends with frightening skeletons carrying boxes of ashes. The macabre dance begins at midnight and continues for three hours into the early morning.
  4. For 130 years, the White House has hosted the Easter Egg Roll on its South Lawn. The main activity involves rolling a colored hard-boiled egg with a large serving spoon, but now the event boasts many more amusements, like musical groups, an egg hunt, sports and crafts. This year’s theme is “Ready, Set, Go!” and will promote health and wellness, featuring activities that encourage children to lead healthy and active lives
  5. In Prizzi, Sicily, “the Abballu de daivuli is a representation of devils from locals wearing terrifying masks of zinc and dressed in red robes,” Those dressed in costume pester as many “souls” as they can before the afternoon when the Virgin Mary and the risen Christ save the day by sending the devils away with angels.

Easter Crafts

Easter Crafts and DIY’S

 

This is The Inside Howl and today we went and found some crafts to make your easter a crafty and artsy experience. The first craft we have is how to make bunny’s out of hard boiled eggs.

 

Easter Bunny Eggs

Craft Eggs

White stiffened felt (you could also use cardstock)

Pink and black acrylic craft paint

Hot glue

Small white pom poms

  1. First, using scissors, cut out ears from the stiffened felt, about 1 1/4″ long.
  2. The felt used had one side that was slightly smoother, so paint pink inner ears on that side using a small paintbrush.
  3. Then cut small ovals for the feet. These are about 3/4″ long and 1/2″ wide.
  4. Then, using a very small brush, give the bunnies cute faces.
  5. Then, using hot glue, glue the feet to the front of the egg. Make sure they touch the table, they help hold him up
  6. Then while the egg is sitting on the table (you still have to hold it up at this point), glue a small pom pom to the back for the tail. Now you should have two feet and one pom pom touching the table which should keep your bunny egg upright!
  7. Finally add the ears! And that’s how you make an easter craft bunny!

 

There is one more craft to go through and that’s the Easter candy jars.

Supplies Needed:

  • Small jars (any size or kind will do-mine are from the craft store)
  • Decoupage
  • Paint Brush
  • Fine Glitter
  • Craft foam or construction paper in pink, white and orange
  • Candy
  • Pom Poms
  • Googley Eyes
  • Hot Glue

Instructions:

Paint a thin layer of decoupage all over your jar. Sprinkle glitter on it and shake off excess.

Set aside and allow to dry.

To make the polkadot jar-use a round sponge brush if you have one or just paint circles with your decoupage and then glitter each dot individually.

Cut ears from your white and pink craft foam and hot glue them to the lid of your bunny jar.

Hot glue a pink pom pom for a tail.

To make the face glue on googley eyes and a pom pom nose and then cut whiskers and glue them in place as well.

Then you fill them with candy and give them to a friend and that’s all there is to it!

Mark Jenkins is a famous artist who started to make sculptures completely out of plastic wrap and masking tape. These fun clear sculptures ranged from dogs to babies and anything in between. This week the art students of New Technology High are creating their very ownDSC_0100 plastic wrap sculptures and placing them around the school in order to learn about space in art.

When asked why Mrs. Smith chose this project she said she thought this would be a fun and creative way to explore space and work together in a way the learners haven’t gotten to before. This is also an opportunity for learners to be able to experience space in a new way and learn how space interacts with others. We went into art to take some pictures to see how artists are coming along with the DSC_0118sculptures._DSC0528_DSC0523_DSC0517
