We are always looking for fun (simple!) spring activities to do with both of our girls. I often try to bring seasonal games into our learning plans. Sometimes a new, novel idea can help a concept like math facts *click* in a new way! Our youngest daughter is a hands-on, tactile learner, and she loves playing with our leftover plastic eggs.
Several years ago, I made a matching game using plastic eggs to help her with letter recognition. Since then, we’ve made plastic egg activities for a variety of subjects and skills. The eggs are great for building fine motor skills and making learning fun!

In case you missed the introduction to our invitation to play series (click here), let me give you a brief introduction to how we structure these fun, simple activities at our house.
An invitation to play is an easy, open-ended activity that uses just a few materials found around the house. Keeping these activities set aside for special times keeps them interesting and intentionally engaging for when you need 10-15 minutes to get something else done! Best of all, these simple materials can be mixed and matched for countless other activities throughout the year.
This week, I have a freebie for you: a download with FIVE simple invitations to play using plastic eggs, including a materials list! Be sure to catch us LIVE on Facebook every Monday in April as I share more details about each of these activities.
Just fill out this quick form to let me know you want the freebie!
