Simple Paper Easter Egg Match
In a pre-k classroom, children sometimes need alone time to decompress. There's usually at least two areas where this is feasible: the quiet center and computer center. The former is filled with stuffed animals, soft pillows, squishy toys, and one-person games. Holidays are the perfect time to introduce new activities to this center, like this Easter egg match. It's very easy to make and perfect for preschool and pre-k classes, in that it allows students to practice recognizing similarities and differences.
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 Matching Board
Source: Google for the egg clipart
- laminator with 2 sheets
- 6 hard 1/2 inch Velcro pieces
- 6 soft 1/2 inch Velcro pieces
- 2 pieces white card stock
- Microsoft word
- Google images
- color printer
- Use Google images to find six different clip art Easter egg patterns. In a Microsoft Word document, place 3 eggs in a column on the left side. Leave a few inches in between and place 3 more eggs in another column. Add a title, print it out, and laminate. Now add a piece of Velcro to the right of each egg, about an inch or so away.
- Now place the same six eggs in another document and print them out. Cut out the eggs, laminate them, and cut them out again. Place a piece of soft Velcro on the back of each egg.
- Match the eggs! Kids can add and remove the eggs over and over because of the Velcro. When the game becomes too easy, you can make a larger board with more eggs. Having eggs that are more similar would also be a challenge!
