Have an egg hunt that is both fun and educational, have an upper and lower case egg hunt! What fun learning idea for Easter!
My kids love hunts, egg hunts specifically around Easter time. We made these letter eggs to match up upper and lower case and spell words too! PS: Have you seen this Plastic Egg Word Game?
Materials you’ll need:
- Polystyrene eggs(but you can use Plastic ones too)
- Sharpies (or any markers)
How to prepare this activity:
Write the letters, upper and lower case, on the eggs. Then, get the kids to help with “decorating” the eggs using the markers.
Hide the eggs around the garden and let the hunting begin…
They had to find an egg, bring it to a designated place, and match the “friends”(matching upper and lower case).
How did we know we found them all? We placed them in alphabetical order and each egg must have a friend!
My youngest found the letters of his name and his sister spelled some words.
This was so much fun and kept them busy for quite a while as they each hid the eggs a few times for each other.
A fun literacy activity one can do leading up to Easter. Great to work on upper and lower case skills while having fun!
