Back in January, my daughter came home from school with a set of flashcards that we needed to go over every night. She is in preschool and they are learning the upper and lowercase forms of the alphabet. Each card had an upper or lowercase letter on them.
We have used them in several different ways trying to break up the repetition. Sitting face-to-face and calling out letters gets a little boring after awhile. So, we have hid them throughout the house, played a memory style game, “Don’t let daddy get the cards” type of game, and the list goes on.
One day, when we were hiding the cards and searching for them, Easter eggs popped in my head for some reason. “Put the letters on Easter eggs!” was screaming at me. And, that is how this little game was created.
Here is a list of the directions (the printable is at the bottom of the post)…
And, the eggs in all their glory…
I used the large plastic eggs that come in a pack of 6 from Wal-Mart, placed washi tape around the opening of both halves to keep them together, and placed a white vinyl letter on the front (I used my Cricut to cut the vinyl).
I can’t wait for my daughter to play this game. She was so excited when I was making the eggs that she added a few herself.
