Last year Remington began an obsession with Easter Eggs and Egg Hunts. After we colored eggs, he continued to ask to put the eggs in color cups for months. In January, Remi saw a picture from last Easter and has insisted on doing “Egg Hunt”. I finally got him to understand that we had Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s, and then Egg Hunt!! I am so excited to finally do all the Easter things with him now!
This first activity was inspired by Chronically Meg, and her Toddler Easter Egg Matching. Its’s super simple and just involves some plastic eggs and a marker! You can adjust based on your kiddos level!
- Plastic Eggs (as many as you want to have your kiddo count up to)
- Black Marker
- Easter Grass & Basket (this just made it more festive, but is not necessary and can be done in a simple bowl)
To set up, you will want to write on the eggs (one half of the egg the number, the other half the number represented in dots). We did up to 12, since I had 6 colors of eggs and wanted it to be even. (Ideally, you want to have multiple eggs in the same color so it’s a little more of a challenge to match the eggs). I used a dry erase marker, so I could reuse the eggs for other projects. In theory, it was a good idea, but it came off super easily. In the future, I think I would just splurge on another set of cheap eggs and use a permanent marker.
When your eggs are ready, toss the egg halves in your bowl or basket and let your child find them and match them up. Remi was so excited to make his matches. We will definitely do this again, and I have some ideas for switching it up a bit in the next coming weeks!
Let me know below how your little enjoyed this one!
