Actually, I had almost forgotten that Easter was this weekend until I was told by my co-teacher that we'd be doing an Easter art project with my kindergarteners this week. I knew keeping the kids in order was going to be a bit stressful, but I was excited to see the students having fun. I remember doing similar things as a kid and how special the holidays always felt. Although there's no concept of an Easter bunny here , I have seen people passing out or selling plain brown eggs (no dying them here) in small baskets at churches around this time of year in the past. I think most of my students understood the point of the activity as my teacher explained it to them, but I saw a few puzzled looks when she mentioned Jesus. Sorry, Buddhist students, you can put two and two together later.
Little Daniel carefully sponge-paints his egg.
Vivian adds some details.
Emily, proud of her creation.
Until next time, I wish you and your families a very Happy Easter holiday. Or Passover to my Jewish friends out there. Or, if you don't celebrate either of those holidays, Happy Spring from Seoul!
