Easter Egg Color Counting {FREE!)

What?!?! I'm blogging on a Thursday?! Crazy town!!!  I just have a lot of Easter activities to share with you so I'm posting a little more this week.  Monday I shared an Easter Egg Color Puzzle game with you that we've been playing with during our school day.  It's so fun (and free! check it out if you haven't already).  Today I want to share another Easter Egg activity for preschoolers with you.  Easter Egg Color Counting- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool
If you've been around here at all lately, you know that we've been working really hard on number recognition, writing our numbers, and counting.  This game addresses two of those objectives.  This was not my idea (how I wish I could come up with ideas this good!), so you need to go to this website for the free download. Once I printed & cut these eggs, I colored both pieces of each egg to match to add an additional color component to this activity.  So now, the student not only has to count the dots, and match it to the number, but they can also match the egg shapes based on color. After I colored the eggs, I laminated them and they were ready to go. I've mentioned that I'm a big advocate for the Montessori Approach, and this activity meets one of those objectives for self-correction.  A child/student can easily see which eggs match, even if they can't count because of the colors, therefore enhancing independent learning.DSC_0135DSC_0796DSC_0795
This was another really easy way to be festive and still continue to practice our numbers this spring.
What are you doing to celebrate Easter with your toddler?
