If you go into any drug store or dollar store, you are sure to see tons of Easter decor out and about, especially the ever popular plastic Easter eggs! If you’re like me, you keep them to reuse every year so you probably don’t need to buy more. I thought it was a good time to give some learning activities you can do with the eggs. The kids I used to teach always loved them!
Language Arts:
1. Contractions: Label one half of egg with the contraction (example-I’m) and the other half with the 2 words that make the contraction (example-I am). Have your child match the parts.
2. Upper and lower case alphabet: Label one half of the egg with the capital letter and one half with the lower case. Then have your child match them.
3. Rhyming words: Label the egg halves with ryhming words.
4. Label halves of eggs with different vowel sounds (short a, long a, short e, long e, short o, long o, etc). Label the other halves with words that contain the vowel sounds. Have your child match the words to the sound.
Math:
1. Label egg halves with numbers and you can add, subtract, or multiply them.
2. Label one half of egg with math problems and other half with the solution. Have your child match them.
3. Label one half of the egg with a number and the other half with the number word (example-one and 1). Have your child match them.
Social Studies:
1. Label small sheets of paper with famous people’s names and put them inside the eggs. Have your child open the eggs and tell what the person is famous for (Example-Betsy Ross made our American flag).
2. Label small sheets of paper with directions (behind, in front, left, right). Have your child open the eggs and tell you an object that is located in that direction.
Science:
1. Label halves of eggs with our 5 senses (sight, touch, hearing, taste, smell) and the other halves with the body part we use for the sense (eyes, hand, ear, mouth, nose). Have your child match them.
2. Label halves of eggs with habitats (ponds, forests, oceans, etc) and the other halves with animals found in those habitats (frogs, bears, dolphins, etc). Have your child match the animals to the habitat.

  • I was hacked into and now haven’t had access to my old e-mail site at yahoo for 7 days. This is my new e-mail. rjspratlen@gmail.com I am starting over. So frustrating since I lost everything. Wanted to let you know. Rita
