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!

 5 Free Invitations to Play: Plastic Eggs | spring, Easter eggs, activities for kids, learning at home, preschool at home

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!
