We added a set of tweezers to up the challenge. I found mine at a Teacher Supplies Store. Amazon carries them as well.

Using a black permanent marker, I wrote down the letters on the eggs. { Involve an older child for this part} I made multiples of the vowels. I also made lower case letter eggs for a future matching activity.

Then it’s time for the fine motor egg hunt. Lots of opportunities for vocabulary and conceptual learning. Using the tweezers to pick up the alphabet eggs was a big challenge which was little bit frustrating for the 4 year old. She was in a hurry to find the next letter. Using the tweezer  really helped her slow down and focus. We went hunting for the eggs in the alphabetical order.

So what do we do with the found eggs? Another mini fine motor activity was in place for that.  I brought out muffin tin and cut out a bunch of super imperfect circles using colored paper { now this when I’d love to have a Circle Paper Punch!!} I wrote down the letters {both upper and lower case} on the circles.

After she found a certain letter egg she would place them in the corresponding slot in the muffin tin.

Best way to do this and not simultaneously not overwhelm the child is to just do a few letters you are currently on and make a bunch of the same letter eggs. Just A-H on in one session. Then flip the circles and make the next set of letters/
