I’m always looking for clever ways to sneak in fun learning games for my kids. We all know that most kids learn better when they learn through play.
If you’re like me, you keep all those darn plastic eggs and say to yourself that you won’t buy anymore the next year, but enevitabley you do every.single.year. Here’s a great way to re-use those darn eggs and help teach toddlers letter and number recognition at the same time.
All you need is a sharpie marker and a ziplock bag or container to store them in when your little one is finished playing.
I completed one set with upper and lowercase letters. Jackson is still young, so I opted to keep the eggs with their matching tops and bottoms. If you want to add more of a challenge have the eggs not match in color.
I also completed a set with numbers, one side with the number and one side with the same number of dots drawn.
Jackson had a great time playing with his eggs!
As much fun as I have watching him play with his “learning eggs” as he calls them, I’m still hoping I’ll remember next year to not buy more. I have so many in my Easter/Spring bin that I could teach him letters and numbers of several other languages!
You can even use these for rhyming words, math problems, pre-fix or suffixes…the possibilities are endless.
