I have seen that designing themed learning activities for younger kids is a great way to sustain interest in the same concept. It gets them look at the same learning activity in a fun and interesting way. Just a few egg shapes for Easter or a few bright hearts for Valentine’s go a long way in my house when we set up learning activities for my kids. Today I have rounded some of the best Easter Activities for kids with a high dose of intentional learning.

Loved the egg-shaped puzzles game. Will definitely incorporate it into our special pre-Easter activity week for my class. Just recently I’ve been looking for activities to do with my kids (I’m a kindergarten teacher) and came across another interesting one called ‘Fingerprint Easter Eggs’ where kindergarten kids can colour acual eggs with their favorite hues. Found it here: http://www.jumpstart.com/parents/holidays/easter/easter-crafts
Any other suggestion for an activity, which doesn’t particularly have anything to do with eggs for this Easter?
Great post. Thanks for including my activity!
