Teach Tuesday – Easter Egg Number Recognition

It’s Tuesday… Teach Tuesday so I’m going to be sharing something educational with you. Since Easter is around the corner I thought I’ll theme my activities around things you will find in your house or easily at the grocery store.

If you don’t have plastic eggs yet, snag some. I got big ones for this activity. The only other thing you need are felt numbers. I got mine from Target in that dollar section, but I also linked them below.

Here are the numbers I have & some large eggs:

Easter Egg Number Recognition

Open each egg and fold the number into the egg. I put Izzy’s eggs into a basket the she could pull out. You could do an egg hunt in the house or outside if your child is very active and needs physical movement.

Then once the child picks and egg and opens it ask them what the number is inside. Izzy would call it out. If they get it wrong, just correct them by stating the correct number. For example if they say, “8” and the number is “3”, just state “number 3.”

After all are opened we would put them back into the eggs again. You can also do this activity with letters and have your child practice saying their letters. If your child has mastered their letters as they open the egg and reveal the letter, ask them to say the letter sound.
