We all know those popular surprise egg toys that kids love. This game is a simpler version of those but with a fun twist for learning! I love this game because it has minimal prep and is a great way to keep kids busy.
Here's what you will need:
- Letter Sheets. You can print our version here or you can easily create your own at home.
- 26 Plastic Easter Eggs
- A set of ABCs. You can use anything from letter magnets to paper with each letter written on it. You will just need to make sure that the letters you choose are small enough to fit into your eggs.
Start by putting one letter of the alphabet in each egg. Close the egg and set it aside in a small container.
Once you have filled all of your eggs and created or printed your letter sheet, that is all the prep you have to do!
Here's how to play:
Pick an egg from the container. Your kid can play by themselves or take turns with a friend. Open it and see which letter you find! Match that letter to the letter on your sheet. For example, if you find the letter "T" in your egg, place it on the "T" on your sheet. Repeat these steps until all of your eggs are empty and your letter sheet is full. You can repeat this game as many times as you want. Repetition is good for learning letters!
You can try different variations of this game, too! Here are some ideas:
- Lowercase Letters
- Colors. Place different colored buttons into your eggs. Open an egg and see what color you find. Keep opening eggs until you find the same color that matches. Continue matching buttons until you have opened all of your eggs.
We would love to see how you play! Share with us on social media @subboxkids!
