Easter Egg Counting (or ABCs)

Cut some Easter eggs out of construction paper. Cut into two pieces using crazy designs (scrapbooking scissors make these EASY). On one side, write a number. On the other, put the same number of stickers. Have your child match them up. They can check their own work because the lines will match. It’s also fun to have your child then line them up in numerical order.

Another version:  You could use plastic eggs instead. Write the number on the outside and have your child place small objects inside each one.

You could also do this with ABCs or rhyming words or any other concept your child needs help with. This would also be a good way to reinforce patterns (pink, purple, blue, pink, purple, blue, etc).

  1. Very cute! As a kindergarten teacher, I truly appreciate those kinds of things!

    Happy Easter!

  2. Very cute idea! It could be adapted for older kids with math problems. One half would have the problem and the other the answer. Thanks for sharing!

    Great idea!! I forgot that I used to do that with my 1st and 2nd graders. See?! This is what happens to my mind when I’m with preschoolers all day long!!! Thank you for that idea! I’m sure many people with older children will definitely utilize this!
