Egg Hunt Skill Builder

This activity is an entertaining way to review any skill you have been working on.

Learning Objective:
The kids will review identification & the labeling of numbers 1-9 and letters A-Z

Materials:
~plastic eggs
~egg inserts with printed questions on them
~a recording form

Instructions:
~Print up questions* you want to review with your children on small slips of paper
~Put one question in each egg
~Hide the eggs around your home (we only hid them in one room to keep the focus on the review & not the egg hunting)
~Send your child out to search for 1 egg at a time.
~Return to the table with the egg they found
~Open the egg & read the review question found inside
~Figure out the answer & record it on any time of recording form (I drew a page full of eggs.
One answer fit in each egg on the paper)
~Check the answer for that question with your child. If it is correct trade in their egg for a
small treat (we use 1 jelly bean per answer). If it is incorrect work together to fix it until they
can earn their treat.
~Continue hunting, thinking, recording, and correcting until all of the eggs are used.

I put a foam letter or number inside each egg, instead of a question. My kids were responsible for copying the symbol correctly on their paper. However, the ideas for possible questions are endless.

Here are some questions suggestions:
~Math Problems – What is 8x4?
~Science Questions – Name three things all living things need to survive.
~Social Studies Questions – Draw a compass rose.
~Spelling Questions – Spell check this word: lern
~Grammar Practice – a plant or an plant?
~ Fill in the blanks – An_e Ho_e

Happy Hunting!

  2. I love this idea! I've been looking for an eater egg idea for the girls. I think I will do two colors - one for each girl so the questions or tasks can match their skill level. My girls already know who is pink and who is purple!

    Can you tell I haven't been checking my blogs this week? I'm sorry to comment on 12 posts at a time!
