Easter is just a few weeks away! Around our house, that means it’s time to pull out the Easter egg activities!
Let’s be clear, though. I have no time (or patience) for elaborate activities. If you’ve been here long, you know I’m all about simple kids activities that can be ready to go in less than five minutes.
In fact, lately one of my mantras has been “How can I make this easier?” (Thanks to Greg McKeown and the book Effortless).
This activity pack was born from that desire to simplify. I originally got the idea for an Easter egg spotting game, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the same printables could be used for several other games as well!
All you have do is print the pack once and then you can use it for FOUR simple Easter activities with your kids. How’s that for efficient?
Four fun Easter games for kids you can play with this activity pack:
1. Easter Egg Spotting Game
Print pages 1, 3, & 4 of the activity pack. Study the game board sheet of Easter eggs. Shuffle the deck of egg cards. Take turns flipping over an egg card. The first person to spot the matching egg wins the card!
Note: If you want to avoid creating competition and sibling rivalry, you can just play this with one child. Have that child flip over the cards one by one and try to find the matching egg on the game board. This is a great vocabulary building activity for younger kids as you talk about colors, shapes, and patterns.
2. Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt
Print one copy of the scavenger hunt (page 2) and the egg cards (Pages 3 & 4). Hide the egg cards around your house (or any defined playing area). Give players the scavenger hunt page. Encourage them to find all the cards and cross off the matching eggs on the scavenger hunt page.
3. Easter Egg Puzzles
Print one copy of the egg cards (Pages 3 & 4). Cut the eggs in half and mix them up. Challenge players to solve the puzzle by putting back together the two matching halves of the “broken” eggs.
For younger kids, only use 5-10 pairs. For older kids, time them to see how fast they can find all the matches! Can they improve their time on a second or third attempt?
4. Memory Matching Game
Print TWO copies of the egg cards (pages 3 & 4). Cut out the cards. Choose 10-15 pairs of eggs to include in the game, depending on the number of players and difficulty desired. Flip all the cards face down and lay them out in a grid. Take turns turning over two cards. If the cards match, you keep the pair and earn a point. If not, turn them back over and it’s the next player’s turn.
Now it’s your turn!
