Virtual Family Fun: Fabergé Egg Extravaganza

Explore Hillwood's glittering treasures and magnificent art, including the exquisite imperial Fabergé eggs, from the comfort of your own home!

Hear the tale of Babushka, known for her beautifully decorated Easter eggs, in a reading of the children’s book Rechenka’s Eggs, written and illustrated by Patricia Polacco. After the story, enjoy looking at beautiful images of Hillwood’s decorative eggs, and sketch your own fancy Easter egg design.

Come prepared with paper and a drawing implement (such as pencil, crayons, or markers) to use during the program.

Suggested for children ages eight and under with their grownups, but all ages are welcome.  A minimum of five households must be registered for this program to take place.

This virtual family program is presented live online via Zoom. A link will be emailed to registered participants prior to the program. To get started, please download Zoom on your chosen device and explore the Frequently Asked Questions
