A Weekend in pictures – 26th/27th March 2016

This weekend we celebrate Easter – Holy Saturday is the last day of Lent and the day of big silence. On Good Friday Jesus died on the cross, on Easter Sunday he rose from the dead – Holy Saturday is the day of the big silence when Jesus is mourned in his tomb.

In our family we prepare Easter on Holy Saturday. We love to plant dye our Easter eggs, this year we used onion skin, amber and indian redwood.

In our family we love to plant dye not just because it’s eco-friendly and healthy, it’s exciting and a lot of fun. And it’s a great learning experience.
