Create a paper or pompom Easter egg to hang on our Easter egg trees.

Help us create a German Ostereierbaum or Easter egg tree by decorating a paper or pompom egg to take home or hang up at the Museum. 

The tradition in Germany to decorate the branches of both outdoor and indoor trees and plants with eggs for Easter is centuries old, although its origins have been lost. The custom is found mostly in Germany and Austria, but also in other German-influenced places such as Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moravia, and the Pennsylvania Dutch region of the United States.
