Poland is wonderful, so rich in history, so rich in culture and so rich in crafts! I would suggest you reading any of Sophia Hoderowicz-Knab's books. One in particular is Polish customs ... it is full of wonderful food ideas, crafts and customs.

One of our favorite crafts to do is to decorate Easter eggs. Many heritages do this (e.g. Ukrainian) and the Poles tended to use wooden eggs. I use real eggs and the beeswax and dyes.

Go to your local library to find out about the history of Poland and about its people!!
