Easter Literacy Activities for Preschoolers
Rainbow Writing Bunnies – Rainbow writing is a fun way to get added writing practice by writing each letter six times, once for each color of the rainbow. Use these free Easter alphabet tracing cards for a little extra writing and letter practice. Be sure to read extra ways to use this printable at the end of the post, too!
Easter Bunny Dictated Story – Show your preschooler a stuffed rabbit and an Easter basket, or the picture on the cover of these lesson plans. Ask your preschooler to draw a picture of the Easter Bunny and a basket of eggs. After your child is finished, ask her to tell you about her picture. Write down everything she says, exactly as she says it, and read it back to her.
Easter Math & Science Activities for Preschoolers
Easter Egg Memory – Grab six plastic Easter eggs and separate the tops from the bottoms. Place them on a sheet of paper in rows of four. Trace a circle around each Easter egg to make a grid. Choose a set of six numbers your child is learning and write them in random circles. Then, fill in the remaining circles with the quantity. Return the Easter egg halves to the sheet of paper so they cover up the numbers and quantities. Now play a game of memory with your child.
What Can Make an Easter Egg Sink? – Challenge your preschooler to find items that are small, and heavy enough, to fill an Easter egg and make it sink in a tub of water. (Because this activity involves small items, it could be a choking hazard. Please supervise your preschooler or toddler closely).
Playful Learning Activities for Easter
Easter Name Hunt – Write the letters of your child’s name on small pieces of paper and put into them an Easter egg. You can also do this with letter manipulatives, which makes it even more fun. Hide the eggs around the house or in the back yard. Once your child has found them all, challenge your child to put the letters of his name in order. If your child is unsure their name spelling, try writing it on a sentence strip, and definitely introduce these name spelling practice sheets.
Easter Egg Craft – Cut out an egg shape from paper or cardboard. Invite your preschooler to paint or decorate it using a variety of craft supplies. See this post for ideas. The possibilities are endless, but here is my favorite brand of washable paint for preschoolers.
Easter Egg Wrap – Have your preschooler wrap plastic eggs with pipe cleaner. If you don’t have pipe cleaner, small rubber bands or even aluminum foil is fun.
Easter Themed Indoor Activities for Preschoolers to Keep Them Active
Baby Animals Gross Motor Game – Challenge your preschooler to pretend to be different baby animals. Here are some ideas: hop like a bunny, nap like a fawn, cheep like a chick, waddle like a duckling, etc. Or, check out this post.
Stuff the Egg – Use this fail-proof playdough recipe and invite your preschoolers to stuff Easter eggs with the playdough. This works on fine motor skills which helps develop writing skills, and so does picking the playdough back out.
Easter Color Match – Give your preschooler a plastic egg and have her go on a scavenger hunt around the house for items of the same color. Repeat with multiple eggs. Or, fill Easter eggs with mismatched colors (like fabric scraps) and hide the Easter eggs around the house. Have your preschooler search for the eggs and then open them and match the colors appropriately.
Fun Preschool Activities for Easter
Zumba for Kids – Get your kiddos moving with some super fun Zumba songs that are appropriate for kids. Try these and then search your own.
Jelly Bean Race – Set out a bowl of jelly beans at one end of the kitchen, and an empty bowl at the other end. Use a spoon or gravy ladle to transfer the jelly beans from one bowl to the other. The goal is to race between the two bowls as quickly as possible, but without spilling any jelly beans! (Like an egg and spoon race).
Plant Flowers – Easter is a great time to start a garden. Try planting a packet of wild flowers.
Safe Online Easter Activities for Preschoolers
Online Story – Go to Storylineonline.net and listen to the book The Tale of Peter Rabbit and read by Rose Byrne. Look for a red button under the video called “Activity Guides” to find more bug related activities that pair with the book.
Bunny Game App – The game The Rabbit is a cute bunny rabbit game app that teaches all sorts of facts about rabbits while also working on basic toddler and preschool skills.
Fingerplay – Practice counting and rhythm by playing along with this Little Bunny Foo Foo. Try adding new versus based on things your preschooler is familiar with or needs help understanding.
