If your kiddos are on Spring Break this week and you are looking for a fun Easter activity to do, check out this super cute idea I received from Lindsay over at Little Sprouts by Lindsay
[h2s_box]

It is Spring Break this week in our school district and I wanted to come up with a fun game for the kiddos to play. I wanted a game that incorporated some learning/review from school, but also fun to keep their attention. I had different aged kiddos here so I had to make it “fit” to everyone.

This is what I did:

I took some small pieces of paper and came up with 26 different learning/review questions and/or statements. Here are some of them I used (you could come up with a billion if you had the time):

*Name three fruits
*Name a jungle animal
*Count to 65 by 5’s
*Name the city you live in
*Write your phone number
*What two colors make purple?
*If there are 5 bunnies and they each have three jelly beans, how many jelly beans are there in all?
*Write your address

After I wrote each one down, I put it inside a plastic Easter egg. I then took a permanent marker and numbered all the eggs. I split the kids up into teams and gave each team a clip board with a piece of notebook paper numbered 1-26 (the number of eggs I had). I hid the eggs around the house. The difference in this hunt is that you have to go around with your team, find an egg, read the paper inside and write your answer on the corresponding line on the notebook paper and then finally, PUT THE EGG BACK so the other team can get to it.

The team that finds all the eggs and answers them wins! At the end of the hunt, I read aloud each question and each team said what they had! This turned out to be a fun game and the kids didn’t even know they were working on reading, writing, teamwork, basic skills, listening and so much more!!! You could make this as big or small as you wanted to. You don’t even need teams, just do it with a few kids. And, you can adjust it to any level![/h2s_box]

    Easter egg hunt for families with multiple children to even the odds—–each child gets a different egg color to hunt for. Other colors they must pass on by.

      Great idea!

    I play sight word twister and candyland. We do a word hunt too. Were in kindergarten and pre preschool. My baby finds objects that are hidden in the color I ask.

    Wow, what a great idea.

    Last year, we had a total of 12 kids. I wanted to do something fun & different rather than just hiding eggs. So I typed each name out in excel. Enlarged the font and printed with the lines around the letters. Cut the letter blocks out and taped each letter to an egg. When it was time for the egg hunt, they had to find the letters to their name. When they found their name, they got to pick a goodie bag. It was a big hit.

    That would be awesome to do with questions on the Bible and about Jesus for kids to answer.

    • Holly

      I agree.

    Great idea!!! I’m going to use this but switch some out for physical activity. Like do 10 jumping jacks or hop like a rabbit.
