Legend has it that every spring a rabbit would visit children’s homes during the night and leave a woven nest with an egg in it as a sign that spring had arrived. Join us to hear this wonderful story and adorn your own spring basket just as the animals do by using materials from the land. We’ll hike to search for leaves, pinecones, flowers, grasses and other materials for your basket trimmings. Then, we’ll dye eggs naturally with leaves, grasses, spices and other gifts of nature to mimic the variety of colorful eggs made by our wild critters! Your creativity and nature’s colors will give your eggs a special one-of-a-kind design! Eggs and other materials will be provided.
