One of the great parts of doing homeschool for preschool is that any day can be time for school. So today when I was cleaning up all the plastic eggs and thought about all the fun learning activities with plastic eggs we did last year, we got to have an impromptu math lesson.
I picked out eggs in two different colors, separated them and then wrote numbers on one half of each egg and made dots on the other half of each egg, using a dry erase marker. The idea was that my preschoolers could match the numbers up to the correct number of dots.
My youngest was having a little trouble snapping his eggs together, but he found a solution — he decided to just stack the halves on top of each other.
If you are looking for some other fun to have with those plastic eggs before they are packed away, check out what we did with them in last year’s post.
