School has been a whirlwind since I last posted but I wanted to share a quick and easy classroom Easter Egg hunt idea I had with you. Last year I purchased these adorable refillable, plastic Easter eggs from my local Dollar Tree. They have been sitting in my cupboard for over year. I knew I would find something to do with them!
I decided to make up a little Easter egg hunt for my class this year. When they come back to school on Tuesday morning, they will find that I have hidden Easter eggs all over the classroom. Did I fill the eggs with chocolate? jelly beans? NOPE! I filled each egg with a math question. When the students find the egg, they will open it, complete the math question and record their answer on the sheet provided and bring it to me to check. If the answer is correct, they will hide the egg again and find a new one. I have hidden 30 eggs, but you could make and hide as many as you want.
I made up a little editable PDF so you could quickly type in your own questions (they don't have to be math questions, they can be anything you want). Print these off, cut them up and put them inside the eggs you already have (or are going to buy on clearance tomorrow since Easter will be over!). Tuesday morning, quickly hide them around your classroom and be ready for the fun to begin. I am going to give each child some sort of small (think jelly beans) candy for each correct answer, and perhaps have a larger prize for those who manage to find and correctly answer all the questions. It will all depend on what I can find on sale tomorrow after Easter is over.
|When you open the file you will see blue boxes. Just type whatever you want into the boxes. Be sure to save under a new file name so you keep your original clear, in case you want to create new questions next year.|
