Make Easter egg matching puzzles from scrapbook paper for your toddler or preschooler to develop visual perception skills.
Puzzles are one of those educational resources that a child from a young age can enjoy. Puzzles help them to put parts of a picture into a whole. They develop visual perception skills that will be needed later on in learning. Start with simple 2-part puzzles like these Easter egg matching puzzles that you make yourself.
You don’t even need a lot of materials, only scrapbook paper. You can even use plain paper that you let your kids make marks on or paint patterns if you’d like. This could be a great art activity that can then be turned into these matching puzzles.
You can download the free easter egg templates from our Freebies page, or simply draw your own egg template to cut eggs from your paper.
Then, cut the eggs in half. You can use zig-zag or wave patterns.
Tip: Laminate the egg puzzles to make them more durable or glue them onto cardboard and seal them with podge to make them chunkier for easy handling.
And there you have Easter egg matching puzzles your young kiddos will enjoy! Pop them into a small bag or box and use them as a busy activity when you are traveling, waiting at appointments, or at a restaurant.
