(Classic Play) Educational Egg Hunts


Kids squeal about and beg to do egg hunts. There is great anticipation and excitement in the hunt. We must bear in mind, though, that a household can contain only so much candy. But if your kids are still longing to continue the hunt, then by all means encourage this classic activity. They are often happy to simply find eggs without anything in them and they might really enjoy hiding them for each other!

There is another option yet, though! You can do an educational egg hunt! Put a slip of paper into each plastic egg with an educational answer. It might be a math question or a word or a sentence for them to try to sound out. For even younger kids, you can have them say the name of a given shape, color, or letter. If you are feeling generous, you can put a penny into each egg and let them keep it if they get the answer right! You will never see your kids so excited about finding and answering educational questions.
