Natural dyeing of eggs at the Atlanta Botanical Garden
Organic pigments that are extracted from certain plants can surprise us with their colors. The Atlanta Botanical Garden is organizing a special activity tomorrow so that children can decorate eggs with these natural dyes and learn more about them.
This plan is different and didactic. You should know that almost all areas of the garden are accessible. In addition, courtesy wheelchairs and scooters are provided for an additional cost.
White House Easter Egg Roll
White House Easter Egg Roll in Washington DC is one of the most popular events in the country. This centuries-old tradition will take place on Monday, April 10 this year. As is customary, the children will use wooden spoons to roll the eggs around the South Lawn of the White House. There will also be an egg hunt, workshops, a talent contest, a reading corner and an obstacle course, among other activities.
Tickets to attend the event are free, but not everyone can get them, as they are in the hands of chance. First you have to fill out an online form. Applicants’ names are entered into a random draw, with those selected receiving an email notification to RSVP and obtain tickets. The draw for this 2023 is already closed, but stay tuned to be able to attend another time.
As the Recreation.gov website indicates, the activity is accessible to people with reduced mobility. In addition, event staff are available to provide additional accessibility information.
