HAPPY EASTER continued...

Cut pairs of egg shapes out of several different colors of construction paper. Place one egg from each pair in an Easter basket and hide the remaining eggs around the room. Invite your child to search for the eggs. Whenever he finds one, have him bring it back to the basket and find its matching colored mate. Continue the game until all the eggs have been found.

Try one or more of the following ideas for using plastic Easter eggs.
  • Take turns with your child tossing the eggs into a large basket or box.
  • Hide a small object inside an egg. Give clues and invite your child to guess what the object is. Then let her hide an object for you to guess.
  • Fill a few eggs with non-sugary items, such as erasers, stickers, or pompoms. Tuck the eggs into your child's basket for discovery on Easter morning.


Tune: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Easter Bunny, hop, hop, hop.
Make your ears go flop, flop, flop.
Hide your colored eggs around
In the grass and on the ground.
Easter Bunny, hop, hop, hop.
Make your ears go flop, flop, flop.

Have your child pretend to be the Easter Bunny and act out the song.
Elizabeth Scofield


Cut egg shapes out of bread slices. Tint sweetened cream cheese with food coloring and spread it onto the egg shapes. Then invite your child to decorate the shapes, using such items as raisins, fruit bits, nuts, or grated coconut.
