Try some of these ideas and make learning fun in your homeschool.  From preschool to geography to fractions. Your kids will enjoy these Easter egg activities.

My kids loved hunting for Easter eggs…for weeks after Easter.  If possible, hide the eggs first. Let them hunt for the eggs and then do one of the following activities.

Easter Egg Activities

  • Number eggs. Find odds and place them in number order. Use an egg carton to hold your eggs.
  • Match clock with time
  • Label eggs with letters so you have enough letters for your spelling words.  Call out your spelling list and let your child use the eggs to spell the words.  Place the word in your egg carton. If you don’t want to call the words yourself, use a program like Phonetic Zoo Spelling. Pop in the cd and they will call out your spelling list.
  • Match states & capitals
  • Match fraction with decimals.
