Now here are some learning activities with Easter eggs for your older children.
I picked up a pack of these foam eggs from Target, but all of these learning activities can be done with construction paper eggs cut into pieces.
Easter Egg Compound Words
Cut each egg into 3 pieces. In the middle section, write the compound word or draw a picture of it. On the top and bottom sections, write the parts of the compound word separately. Challenge your child to match the egg pieces.
Easter Egg Numbers
Cut each egg into 3 pieces. In the middle section, write the sum. Work together with your child to find the top and bottom pieces that add up to your number in the middle. You can draw dots, tally marks, number words, dice pictures, etc. Tricky!
Easter Egg Alphabetical Order
Cut each egg into 3 pieces. Write one word for each letter of the alphabet on the pieces, working in order from top to bottom, left to right. Underline the first letter of the word. Try to pick words that mean something to your child (names of people in your family, characters in favorite books or shows, simple words that are referred to when learning letter sounds, etc.). Put the eggs together by reading and putting the words in alphabetical order.
Easter Egg Rhyming Words
Cut each egg into 3 pieces. Write rhyming words on each piece or draw a picture of things that rhyme. Match the rhyming words or pictures to put together the eggs.
