I love the simplicity of this easter alphabet activity! It’s the perfect way to practice letter recognition and letter names. Make your own alphabet mat or download the free printable from Fun Learning from Kids. You could also use a do a dot marker instead of stickers or different types of mini erasers to cover the letters.
Make your own letter mats to practice any way you want. Write capital letters or lowercase letters to match. Another twist would be to write lowercase letters on the egg, but then capital letters to match on the stickers. Any activity with stickers is great fine motor work for little learners!
These free, printable Peeps Themed Learning Activities are adorable and easy to print and play. Use them for matching letters, spelling words, or for letter identification as you hide and find the peeps.
Sort the peeps by color and then identify the letters of a certain colored pile. Find the peeps that spell your name. Put the bunnies in alphabetical order and then find the lowercase chick to match. There are so many ways to use this free printable!
Teaching with Nancy has these free, printable beginning letter sound pictures to match with plastic eggs. I love this idea! The way she put the capital and lowercase letters on each egg is a great way to introduce or reinforce children to lowercase letters. This type of Easter egg hunt can be done all month long! I can imagine my daughter taking these to her play kitchen and making recipes or shopping with them.
A Little Pinch of Perfect uses this free, printable letter mat to create an alphabet hunt. Kids always love an egg hunt and this one can be done at any time of the year.
Put alphabet magnets inside the eggs and hide them around the house or yard. Challenge your child to collect the eggs in an Easter basket. Then, as they open them they can match the entire alphabet in alphabetical order on the page. It might be helpful to put the page on a cookie sheet so the letters stick to the page and don’t move around as easily. You could also put a foam sticker letter inside each egg that is stuck onto the alphabet mat when the eggs are found.
There’s just something exciting about finding an egg and opening it up to see what’s inside. I love a low prep activity like this that can be done over and over again.
Kindergarten Worksheets and Games has these free, printable Easter phonics eggs to practice beginning letter sounds. I like that these eggs are cut in different ways to serve as a way to self check. This Easter activity is a fun way to work on letters of the alphabet and their sounds.
These free, printable Easter egg puzzles are perfect from Fun with Mama! The colors can be used as clues for those young children just starting to explore the alphabet. Match the uppercase letters to the lower case letters to make an egg.
If your child is ready for scissor practice, challenge them to cut along the lines to cut the puzzles apart. It is ok if they aren’t perfect. It will just be an additional clue to help them solve the puzzle.
The Letters of Literacy offers this free printable chick and egg letter matching activity. This is a great way to work with matching upper case letters and lowercase letters and those chicks are just too cute!
Your kids will love this free, printable Feed the Bunny Alphabet Game. You can use magnetic letters instead of printing out the carrots.
This activity naturally draws children to it regardless of age. So it is perfect for practicing many different skills. You can also use this activity to practice other concepts like fine motor skills, colors, numbers, sight words, etc. It just depends on what you decide to feed the Easter Bunny. We’ve used pom poms and tweezers, buttons, shape blocks, and construction paper pieces with words on them to feed the bunny and practice different skills.
Mom Wife Busy Life used the plastic eggs themselves as a matching activity. Make an egg for each letter of the alphabet. Challenge your child to match the letters and put the eggs together. If that seems overwhelming, have your child sort the eggs by color first and then only choose one color to match and put together.
Take it one step further and use an empty cardboard egg container to match the eggs in. Simply write a letter in each section of the carton to match the egg to. It’s the perfect way to store this activity too.
Write words on the eggs to match up or even numerals and that number of dots on each half of the egg. There are just so many fun ways to use plastic eggs to make learning fun!
I like the way NurtureStore uses their Easter alphabet letters to make a writing tray. What a simple way to encourage writing! Because your child is writing the letter in sand, it becomes a sensory and tactile experience that is more effective than writing it on paper. It’s just another great way to provide extra writing practice in an interesting way.
This sensory bin from Kindergarten Connection is made with split peas and the printable carrots. Use a clothes pin or tongs to pull the letters out of the garden for an extra fine motor skills challenge. Add spoons, containers, and funnels to scoop and pour the peas. Pull the letter out and say its name or sound. Can you find the letters of your name?
