Kids can design their own pysanky (Easter eggs) at the Ukrainian Museum this weekend. In this hands-on workshop, dyes, beeswax and a stylus are used to decorate the eggs with traditional Ukrainian designs. The museum encourages you to “fill your Easter basket with beautiful pysanky, rather than just plain colored eggs!”

Adults – $15; students over 16 & seniors – $10; children ages 12–16 – $5.  April 16, 10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m., April 17, 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. & 2:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. The museum is at 222 E.6th, between Second and Third Aves.
