Eggs-citing Easter Egg Activities for Kids

Think Easter and the first thing that comes to mind is delectable and gaily colored Easter eggs (with a chocolatey center!). Hence, on the occasion of Easter, here are three eggs-citing Easter egg activities your kids will love doing.

Easter Eggs with Missing Halves

This is a number learning activity that is suitable for younger kids. Begin by asking your child to draw 10 eggs on construction paper or cardboard. It does not matter if the eggs aren’t exactly identical in shape. Next, ask her to cut them out using a blunt pair of scissors. Now divide each egg into two halves by drawing a zig-zag line through their middles. Assign each egg with a number in the top halves from 1 to 10.

In the bottom halves, use a marker to draw small stars to correspond with the number on each egg. Finally, cut out each egg across the zig-zag line such that the numbers get separated from the bottom halves containing the stars. Now you’ll have half cracked eggs, some with numbers and the others with stars. Ask your little ones to match the corresponding cracked missing halves with each other.

Easter Egg Bunny

What could be a better craft for Easter than an Easter egg and an Easter bunny rolled into one? Take a hardboiled egg and allow your little one to draw a bunny’s face on to it with a black marker – two eyes, a round nose, and a toothy smile. Now draw out two ears on construction paper or cardboard with a pencil, color them pink and stick them to the back side of the face. Use a pink marker to color the bunny’s nose for a more cheerful looking guy. Finally, take some cotton and make two round balls to stick on to the opposite end of the ears, at the bottom of the egg. After all, a bunny needs to hop, skip and jump on his own little feet, doesn’t he? Prop up the grinning guy on your mantelpiece or dining table or study table and spread some Easter cheer all around!

Easter Egg Maze

This worksheet activity is a tried and tested fun maze printable that can be downloaded and printed from various sources. It can assume different storylines – a hen trying to find her way to her chick which is stuck at the center of the maze and can’t find its way out, an Easter bunny trying to reach carrots or simply your child being stuck in a maze herself and needing to find a way out. The common factor amongst all these is that the maze is in the shape of an Easter egg and has a back story with a hint of Easter to it. This is just one of the many Easter activities for kids that are available online.

May your Easter be as colorful as the eggs you find in your basket!
