Easter Egg Hunts

Easter Egg Hunts

Easter Egg hunts are always a big part of our family’s tradition. But at the same time I always try to make every activity a learning experience. Scavenger hunts are one of the easiest kids activities to make educational. Plus, no matter what kids love it! You can do a bug hunt, treasure hunt (learn about different forms of money), nature hunt and the list continues. So how can I make an Easter egg hunt fun and educational at the same time.

My toddler is working on learning the letters of the alphabet. She knows her numbers up to 10, but I’ve been working on letters with her as well. So here is what I came up with:

Get 26 eggs. Then put each of the letters of the alphabet into an egg. Hide them around the yard, or if you’re like us and Winter is still here, around the house. As your toddler finds the eggs, they need to find the letter on the chart you made before they can begin searching for the next egg. Then make it even more educational and number the letters on your chart. Thus allowing you to work on both numbers and letters at the same time.
