If you are like me, then you have tons of plastic eggs lying around. They seem to multiply this time of year. If you are looking for a use for all those eggs you can try a Counting by 10's Caterpiller or this Easter Egg Letter Matching Game that will help your child learn and play at the same time.
Easter Egg Letter Matching Game
Supplies you will need:
- Plastic Easter eggs (the kind that open up in the middle)
- Permanent marker
This would work great with a supply of 26 eggs so you can do the entire alphabet. I only had 18 but luckily for me the kids didn't notice. Write a letter on each egg with the permanent marker. You will want to make sure that your write it in such a way that when taken apart a kid can figure out how to put it together again.
Break the eggs in half and put them in a basket.
My girls love puzzles and when I told them we had a new egg puzzle to put together, they were intrigued. I wasn't sure if they could do it or not. They are three and a half and I have done this with Kindergarten students. But they were able to do them all and are still playing with this Easter Egg Letter Matching Game days later.
I think it helped that they were searching for eggs that were the same color to put together. Once they put them together, they would twist them until the letter lined up to see if they had the correct letter. A great egg-stention (you know I had to go there!) and another Easter egg idea is to have the kids line up the eggs in alphabetical order when they are done. This is why it helps to have 26 eggs.
