Easter Learning Activities for Kids

by - Monday, April 30, 2018

Easter  marks the beginning of spring and life. Although we don't celebrate the festival, I still did some Easter learning activities with the kids, because there are so many fun activities associated with Easter! One thing that can't be missed is definitely hunting for Easter eggs.

Here is a short video of the activities that we did. (psst.. if you like this video, please like, share and subscribe to our YouTube Channel. Thanks a lot) If you would like any of the printables that goes along with the activities, you may download them at the end of this post.


Easter Egg Hunt


Both Big J and Small J love any activity with movement, so the Easter hunt is undoubtedly their favourite among all these activities. To include some learning element, I hid magnetic letters in the plastic eggs and hid them around the house.

The boys then went hunting for the eggs. After they have found the eggs, they get to crack them. Small J is to write down the lowercase letters of the letters he found, while Big J needs to write down two words that begins with that letter.

There were lots of laughter and fun while hunting for the eggs. Of course, there were some cries too, because someone collected lesser eggs than the other.

Easter Sensory Bin


Both the boys love sensory bins, so I obviously have to create one for our Easter-themed learning too.

Easter Sensory Bin

I filled a big bin (this is the SAMLA Box from IKEA) with plastic eggs, pom poms, an empty egg carton, some bowls and tools for them to handle. 

They filled the eggs with the pom poms and then cracking the eggs again. They did lots of scoping and pouring, tried to stack up the eggs to build a tall tower and many more! Using the tongs and chopsticks is good for strengthening their fine motor skills. They also pretended to cook up a meal for their soft toys.

They also did colour matching and counting the number of pom poms to put in the eggs. We did everything in English and Mandarin.

Easter Geoboard


A geoboard activity which the boys need to form the Easter theme pictures using loombands while observing the photos. There are pictures of bunny, flower, eggs and carrot. I have include these cards in the download link below.

This is a very quiet, sit-down activity which I thought my active boys will not like. Surprisingly, they actually like this! I guess it must be quite therapeutic to stretch the bands and see the image forming before their eyes. Stretching the loombands is also a good way to strengthen the little fingers.

Bunny Clip & Sequence


Small J is currently working on his teen numbers and fine motor skills. So I created this simple sequence and clip activity for him. I printed the bunnies on colour paper, attached them to wooden clothpegs and wrote the numbers on the bunnies. He will need to sequence and clip the bunnies onto the container.

These cards are so versatile, you can use it with whatever skills your child is working on, such as sightwords, vocabulary or chinese words.

Here's a tip, use permanent marker to write the number on transparent tape and stick it onto the laminated bunnies. This way, the ink will not come off when your child is handling it. After you are done with the activity, simply tear of the tape and it can be reused again.

Easter Addition


This is a simple addition practice using plastic eggs and pompoms. Small J is learning about simple addition and this is a good way for him to visualise how it is done.

Here's what he needs to do. He will fill both the top and bottom part of the plastic egg with some pom poms. Next, he count the pom poms in each halves and write down the number on the recording mat. Then he will combine the two halves and count the total number of pom poms and record it on the sheet. This helps him to better understand what an equation means.

Stacking Easter Eggs


Another fun way to use the plastic eggs is to stack them up and see how tall a tower you can build before it topples. This game always ends in laughter.
