As promised here is a photo of my dough version of Kyra Sarakosti or “Lady Lent”. I love her! Make with flour+water+decorate with happiness. Bake for 15 minutes at 200 degrees or until all rozy and brown.

My husband is in love with her too and wont let me break her legs off! He feels sorry for her. But it’s tradition!

Here are some sitting chickens the kids made for Easter! We’ve made them in different sizes, coloured them with crayons and on some we used crepe-paper for the wings and crest. To make them use the template below, fold and cut along the orange line.. The wings and any extra bits can be made by using the left over pieces after all the cutting. Watch out because younger children find it a little difficult cutting around the tail bit. But its all worth it. They are all so cool i wanted to steal them and take them home all for me!

Today during my English lesson I showed the girls how to make Kyra Sarakosti or “Lady Lent” which is a greek tradition. You make her on Clean Monday, out of paper or dough. Since I wasnt about to take over the poor family’s kitchen I opted for paper! She has no mouth because she is fasting and she has seven legs, representing the number of weeks in Lent. Every week leading up to Easter you remove a leg! Here she is in all her glory! I got so excited that tomorrow i’ll make my own out of dough to hang in my kitchen.
