Easter Eggs Craft is one of the easiest crafts for kids.
After the excitement of the Easter egg hunt, do not throw those eggs away! They can be made into awesome tools for learning. When I saw these word family eggs at Living and Learning I fell in love. But knew that it was a little past my son’s grasp of reading. So we changed it into interchangeable word eggs. Huge hit !
- Start by making some words you know they know. The reason I do that is to foster confidence. If they know they figured these first words out, they are more apt to accept the challenge of new words.
- Next, pop the ends off more eggs and add single letters.
- Play. My 4 year old adored this. He called himself a “Word Detective” and tried and read every pair.
- The challenge wasn’t as tough as either of us thought, so I made another end sound (all) to add to the bunch.
- Snap together and read.
