Save your plastic Easter eggs to create this Easter egg rhyming words game for preschool and kindergarten kiddos. Hands-on learning for the holidays!
While this game is designed to help preschoolers match rhyming words, it is easy to adapt this activity to reinforce a variety of early learning skills.
Save your plastic Easter eggs to prepare this fun hands-on learning activity for your young learners.
Easter Rhymes for Preschoolers
To prepare this activity, gather some plastic Easter eggs, a black sharpie, and an Easter basket.
Break apart the eggs. On one half of the top part of an egg, write one of the rhyming words.
Find a different color bottom egg half. Write the rhyming word that goes with the top part on the bottom half. Set egg halves aside.
Repeat these steps for all eggs until every egg has a top half and matching bottom half. Colors can be mixed or the same (we mixed the colors on our eggs.)
Split up the egg halves – the tops of the eggs on one side and the bottom of the eggs on the other side. Place the Easter basket in the middle.
Have the child find the rhyming word matches by saying the words out loud and placing the egg halves together.
Place completed eggs in the basket. Repeat this until all eggs are matched correctly!
In addition to using plastic Easter eggs to practice Easter rhymes, you can use them to work on letter recognition (match uppercase and lowercase letters), simple addition facts, or even colors.
