Warm spring weather will soon be here, and for Christians, ushers in Easter and the celebration of new life. A symbol of new life is best represented by the traditional Easter eggs. Over the years, the Easter egg has gone from the traditional to non-traditional, being made from different items. Cromwell Valley Park will show another item you can use to create special Easter eggs.

Gordgeous Eggs
On Sunday, April 13 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Cromwell Valley Park is offering Gordgeous Eggs, a program suitable for families and individuals ages 8 and older, at the Willow Grove Nature Education Center

The cost is $3.00 for members and $5.00 for non-members. Pre-registration is required as walk-ins are not allowed. Click here for a registration form.

Cromwell Valley staff will show you how to create a different kind of Easter egg. Instead of real eggs, you will use an egg-shaped gourd. It will be a delicate and sticky job, requiring plenty of patience.
