Pysanky (Day 1)

  1. Pysanky
  2. A pysanka (Ukrainian: писанка, plural: pysanky) is a pretty Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax.

Today we began working on our paper pysanky projects.  I 

gave each student a large egg to trace on white construction 

paper.  Then, I gave them a worksheet I found in The 

Mailbox Intermediate, February/March 1996 (p. 31).  This is 

a page of symbols and colors and their special meaning.  An


The classes worked on creating a design that would have 

special meaning to their family or a specific family member.

If you are interested in making an actual pysanka, please 

look at my blog from Friday.  I have listed three websites that

are very helpful in making this a tradition in your home!
