Looking for Easter activities for your kids? I’ve got this super easy-to-prep and fun Easter Egg Number Hunt for you!
My kids loooveeed this activity (maybe because it involves the shredded paper and that’s always fun). They worked together, searched and found all of the eggs and then placed the numbers in order. Great team work!
My favorite part about this activity is that it makes learning so much fun and exciting. I’m not too keen on seatwork, head-down and writing. I think that can get boring and actually, tiring. That’s why I love to create activities that my preschooler (and toddler) can do, have fun, exercise/improve gross and fine motor skills and be excited about learning!
