As Easter gets closer, sitting down with Ukrainian Easter egg coloring pages and crayons or markers opens the door to talk to our kids about what they’re coloring — just as we mentioned in our roundup of 21 fabulous, famous International Women’s History Month coloring pages.
We love how coloring pages of exquisite Ukrainian Easter eggs, known as pysanka, will not only help your kids create beautiful art based on a traditional craft, but also open the door to talking about about the attack on Ukraine by Russia right now.
After all, our kids may be seeing memes about WWIII or hearing tragic news reports and struggling to comprehend it all. And, since I often find it hard to talk about tough subjects with young kids without making it sound like a classroom lecture, I like using the idea of using these coloring pages as a way to open dialogue about Ukraine.
Plus, it’s a lot more kid-friendly to work with paper and crayons and not the delicate blown-out eggs, natural dyes, and wax needed to create authentic pysanka eggs. (Though hey, go for it if you’re up for a more advanced craft!
