We’re pretty EGG-cited for Easter over here… well, for that and for SPRING (oh 30-degree weather… you and I need to talk.) Today, it was beyond frigid out, so we did some number and alphabet fun around the house and the kids had a ball. First we did a numbers hunt. We made two eggs for every number and then I hid them around the house and the kids found each match. It was basically an indoor egg hunt (without the treat inside… oops!) Johnny had so much fun with this (and Avery randomly ran around calling numbers out, giving half of their whereabouts away!) This took all of 5 minutes to throw together, so try it with your kids. They’ll love it!
Next we played “Alphabet Memory”… Johnny is all into memory/matching games right now so this was a blast! Again, I used two eggs for every letter of the alphabet, wrote the letters on the back of the eggs, and washi-taped them to the wall (PS, it won’t tear your wall!) That was it! So fun and easy. You can make it as easy or as challenging as you want by using more or fewer patterns. Johnny is 4 and this was plenty challenging and engaging.
And of course… while Johnny did his thing, little bit sat at the table and sorted, called out numbers and letters and had fun of her own. So grateful for these balls of energy… hope you’re getting ready for Mr. Cottontail, too!
