Zay and I have been working on letter sounds and upper and lowercase letter recognition, which is why we put together this fun outdoor Easter-themed activity, we even brought out a homeschool resource we love, Abc See, Hear, Do by Stefanie Hohl.
Since we’ve been focusing on becoming familiar with uppercase and lowercase letters, matching the eggs was a fun and challenging game.
To begin you’ll need:
Tray or bin
Colored Rice (optional)
26 plastic eggs
Black Sharpie marker
ABC See, Hear, Do book (optional, but recommend it)
Sometimes, kids prefer uppercase letters over lowercase letters, or lowercase letters over uppercase letters, and can easily confuse them.
With this activity, encourage your child to match the eggshell with an uppercase letter to the eggshell with a lower case letter and have them pour colored rice in one of the eggshells before they close it to celebrate their correct match!
We didn’t plan on putting our fine motor skills to work but those plastic eggs were stubborn, and putting them together was no easy task! The fun DIY rainbow-colored rice isn’t necessary, but it does add sensory fun to the activity. Whoever said learning can’t be fun is doing it all wrong!
