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 there are, we got to have an impromptu math lesson.
Plastic Egg Math Activity
You can use any color or size egg for this activity.
I decided to pick out eggs in two different colors, yellow and orange.
Separate the eggs.
Then use a permanent marker to write numbers on half of each egg. On the other half of the egg put the corresponding number of dots. Don’t worry, rubbing alcohol will take off the permanent marker after you are finished.
Have your preschooler match the numbers up to the correct number of dots.
This plastic egg activity is a fun way to work on one-to-one correspondence and counting skills.
Snapping the eggs together is also a fun way to work on dexterity skills.
If your child is struggling with getting the eggs back together, have them try what my youngest preschooler did. Just stack the halves on top of each other.
