Greek Easter Eggs

A colorful Easter egg hunt is a really fun activity for kids. Eggs have long been a symbol of spring and were adopted as a religious symbol for Easter. Greeks hard boil eggs to serve on Easter and dye them red to symbolize the blood of Christ. When the egg’s shell is removed, it’s supposed to symbolize Christ emerging from the tomb after he is resurrected. They are very easy to make and a great family activity.
