### Fun Easter Activities for Kids

The weather is warmer and Easter is almost here!

Here are some fun Easter activities for kids that include eggs and bunnies.

Do you have lots of plastic eggs from previous years? These are great to use to make fun math and literacy activities for kids. All you need is some inexpensive plastic eggs and a permanent sharpie marker.

 Easter Egg Fun

For very young children you can make matching games with the eggs. Write the same letter or number on both halves of the plastic eggs and have students match them. You can also draw and use shapes!

Older students can play a fun addition facts or multiplication facts game with the plastic eggs. On one half of the egg write 2 numbers (addends) and on the other half of the egg write the answer (sum). For multiplication, write the 2 numbers (factors) on one half of the egg and write the answer (product) on the other half.

Sums of 10 (also called Friends of Ten) is another fun addition game. Students match up 2 numbers (addends) that equal ten.

I'm sure that you and your students can think of lots of other fun games to play with the plastic eggs. The older kids can even help make the games.

### Free Rainbow Beginning Sounds Game Printable for Kindergarten

As the weather gets warmer and warmer here in New England our snow on the ground is melting quickly! It's almost time to put away our winter snow boots and take out the spring rain boots! Kids love playing in the puddles and hopefully they will also get to see some rainbows this spring!

I hope spring comes early!

 Beginning Sounds Game

I created a fun rainbow beginning sounds game for kids that you can print out for home or school. I made one with uppercase letters and another one with lowercase letters. Both FREE versions are over at my website. Just click HERE to go there to get your copies. The kids could use dice (1 die) or a spinner to play the rainbow theme game and practice beginning letter sounds.

The letters for kids to practice with for this game are f, g, h, i, j, n, o, q, u, v, w, and x.

 Rainbow Beginning Sounds Game - Lowercase Letters

Previously, I posted a snowman game with the other letters of the alphabet  (a,b,c,d,e,k,l,m,p,r,s,t, and x). Find that post HERE.

Happy teaching and enjoy the warmer weather with the kids! :)
