10 Ways to use Easter Eggs with Kids

1- Vowel Search: Write a vowel and hide it in an egg, once your child finds an egg with a letter they must name the 2 sounds this letter makes and/or write a word for each of the sounds made by that vowel.


2- Use a grabber to pick up eggs to work on grip strength or finger strength depending on the grabber used.


3- Match cards to eggs. This is a great activity for visual perceptual skills and graded finger control (children learn to be gentle with fingers) Check out this activity at Make and Takes


4-Draw dots on one half of the egg and a number on the other half  ex: 3 dots for number 3. Ask children to find the match (Make sure to use different colored halves so that children are not relying on matching color) Check it out at Room Mom 101


5-Use a scooter  board to find matches on either side of the room.

6- Walk across a balance beam holding an egg on a spoon or with 2 spoons.

7-Match uppercase and lowercase letters on either half of the eggs.

8- Bunny and friends: Hide the name of animal in each egg and as children find them, they must imitate the animal walk


9-Math match: Write numbers on both halves of the eggs. Ask children to match top and bottom by same color. They must then add both numbers and put that amount of beads in it. ex: 3 + 4= 7 (put 7 beads in that egg)

10-Hide foam letter stickers in the eggs, when children find an egg, they peel the sticker, place it on paper and write a word that starts with that letter or have them find the letters of their name and then copy it.
