During this time we carry out activities associated with Easter. Here are a few ideas that the pre-schoolers could do at home. Please send us photos of your creations/activities you've done to our e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you write in your e-mail that it is ok to publish your photos we will do so and they will be seen in our website's photos.
- People often celebrate Easter by eating chocolate or buns and cakes. Try making a sweet treat to share with your family.
- Try making a model basket to hold some Easter treats! You could use an empty cardboard box and decorate it with paints or colourful Easter pictures.
- At Easter time lots of flowers start growing in the ground and on the trees. When you go for a walk (remembering all the safety measures), see what flowers and plants you can see growing.
- Egg starts with the letter "e". What else starts with this letter? Ask an adult to write a list of other things starting with this letter. How many things can you think of?
- If there are 10 eggs in a basket and then 5 get eaten, how many would be left in the basket? You could use your fingers or draw a picture to help you.
- Decorate a picture of an egg. You could ask an adult to decorate it with various 2D shapes and then colour them in and name them.
- Draw or paint an Easter picture-you could draw some Easter eggs, flowers, chicks or even the Easter bunny!
- Have an Easter egg hunt! Ask a grown-up to hide some Easter eggs for you to find. How many eggs can you find? Can you count all the eggs by saying one number name to each egg?
- Try some planting activities. You could plant some seeds in a flowerpot filled with soil. Make sure to give them some water and put them somewhere sunny.
- Decorate some hard-boiled eggs to make them bright and colourful.You could use pens or paints and add some extra decorations, such as stickers, feathers, pom-poms or googly eyes.
- Share a favourite storybook with a grown-up.
We hope you'll find these ideas useful. Please remember to share photos of your creations/activities with us!
Have fun, take care and keep safe!
