The House of Faberge and The Last Czar of Russia

2-4 Hour Experience at Your Home

This Easter, students can learn about this history of Russia's Last Czar and the world's most expensive Easter Egg Hunt in an Experience that walks through the end of the reign of the Romanov family and their custom of giving extravagant eggs as gifts. Children will learn about the House of Faberge, and their long history of making beautiful, one-of-a-kind, jeweled eggs, before making their very own "Faberge" eggs. If there's time, they'll also enjoy an egg hunt with their egg creations. This Experience includes a short, History Channel video on the House of Faberge.

What Parents are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.
