Looking for a fun Easter Activity for Kids? These Easter Eggs-ercises are a great way to celebrate the holiday while getting your little ones up and moving!
If you hadn't already noticed, my boys have a lot of energy. That's why I lean more and more towards activities that keep them on-the-go rather than sitting quietly at a table. After a morning spent trying to behave themselves at preschool, I know better than to ask them to perform sedentary tasks at home!
I credit the kids' teacher at school for this particular inspiration. She did something similar last year, which Gibbs came home raving about. While I don't know the details about the classroom activity, I was definitely encouraged to come up with my own at-home version for this year.
To start, you'll need a dozen plastic Easter eggs in a used egg carton.
In each egg you will insert an activity. It can be anything, but here is the list that I printed off, then cut into strips:
The kids took turns opening one egg at a time. Casey read us the numbers on each paper, while Gibbs worked to sound out the words.
They had SO much fun with this and we have repeated it many times since! Here are a few snapshots of our pencil rolls, giant leaps, backwards steps, and even Spencer's attempt at a somersault!
This is a great spring activity because you can do it inside on a rainy afternoon (like us), or take it outdoors when you see that warm sunshine! Have a great holiday!
