Reuse those Easter eggs and set up this plastic egg word game to practice word building in a fun way!
Do you use these plastic eggs during Easter? What do you do with it afterward? I like keeping it to play games like this fun plastic egg word game! PS: Also see these fun printable Easter activities.
For this game you will need:
- Plastic eggs
- letters(either Foam letters, letter beads or small letter cards)
Add a letter to each egg. You can hide the eggs to make this game more challenging, but you don’t have to. We took turns to hide the eggs in the garden because part of the fun is the scavenger hunt, right?
How to play the game:
Each player rolls the dice, then go find that number of eggs. Come back with the eggs, open them up and see what letters you have. You might be lucky and rolled 5 or 6, therefor you will have more letters you can work with. If you only have one or two letters, you will have to wait for the next round to add to your letters. See how many words you can build with the letters you have. Record it using THIS recording sheet.
Keep your letters after each round. Roll again and again until all the eggs have been found and with each round see how many words you can spell with the letters you found. When all the eggs are found you can “trade” letters to help each other spell more words. The player with the most words wins!
A fun word game to play with those plastic and get active plus practice word-building skills!
