We have made this beautiful Easter eggs, and we have used them to decorate the classroom doors (sorry about the pictures; I took them with my mobile phone and they are not very good, and besides, I'm running out of memory too so...this is the result)

The Easter Bunny

"Here comes Peter Cottontail
hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity
Easters on its way!"

What Does the Easter Bunny Have To Do With Easter?

 Well, nothing.

Bunnies, eggs, Easter gifts and fluffy, yellow chicks in gardening hats all stem from pagan roots. They were incorporated into the celebration of Easter separately from the Christian tradition of honoring the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead.

The origin of the celebration -- and the Easter bunny -- can be traced back to 13th century, pre-Christian Germany, when people worshiped several gods and goddesses. The Teutonic deity Eostra was the goddess of spring and fertility, and feasts were held in her honor on the Vernal Equinox. Her symbol was the rabbit because of the animal’s high reproduction rate.
Spring also symbolized new life and rebirth; eggs were an ancient symbol of fertility. According to History.com, Easter eggs represent Jesus' resurrection.

The first Easter bunny legend was documented in the 1500s. These legends were brought to the United States in the 1700s when German immigrants settled in Pennsylvania Dutch country.

(taken from a Lauren Effron's article)

The legend goes back to the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Legend says that when Jesus died and was put in the tomb, a scared bunny was hiding inside.
Bunny watched the body of Jesus in the tomb and wondered who was that man that many people were crying.
The bunny spent there two days, and he saw Jesus stood up alive and the Angel withdrawing the stone from the entrance of the tomb. Then, the bunny thought  that man could only be the son of God and he was so happy that he decided to tell the world that Jesus was alive, and that they no longer had to be sad.
But ...  the bunny could not talk, so he thought that if he painted the eggs with lots of colours,  people would understand the reason of his joy.
Legend says that since then every Easter Sunday,  a bunny leaves chocolate eggs painted colors for all the children, to celebrate that Jesus has risen.
