Junior Outlook
Junior Outlook Easter is an important Christian festival and holiday, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are many different customs for celebrating Easter, but early celebrations included the painting of eggs, which represented Jesus's empty tomb. Now we give Easter eggs –usually chocolate – to our friends and family, and have Easter egg hunts for eggs hidden by the Easter bunny. Try making this scrunched tissue paper egg to celebrate Easter … You will need Card Glue Scraps of coloured tissue paper Instructions Draw an egg shape on the card, and cut it out. Crumple the tissue paper scraps into balls. Glue the tissue paper balls to one side of the egg-shaped card. You can make your egg all one colour, or add stripes or other patterns. When you’ve finished, punch a hole in the top, thread a bright ribbon through and hang up your egg on Easter Day.
