Easter is a great time to reinforce counting skills in toddlers. All that egg collection and candy assortment, there are many ways to make education fun!
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- Scrapbook stick on numbers
- Empty egg carton
Cut off two compartments of the egg carton so you have 10 compartments. Place numbers 1-10 in the bottom of each compartment
Place 1 jelly beans or other small candy in an plastic egg. In the next egg place 2, in the next place 3, until you fill the last egg with 10 jelly beans. Hide them and let your toddler collect them.
When all the eggs have been collected, let your child open one and remove its contents (no eating yet!)
Carefully place the candies on a napkin or towel and help your child count them one by one
After counting, help your child match the amount of jelly beans to the number in the egg carton. Continue opening up more eggs and dispersing them in the same manner until all the numbers are matched up and then: let the jelly bean eating begin!
