Easter Crafts and Activities

Looking for simple crafts and activities for Easter? We’ve got you covered!

Alphabet Egg Puzzle Match

This alphabet egg puzzle is a fun way to practice matching lowercase to uppercase letters! To make the puzzle, cut egg shapes out of colorful cardstock. Then cut each egg in half with a fun pattern and write the lowercase letter on the top half with the uppercase letter on the bottom. To make the game more challenging, try using all the same color paper (so your little ones can’t match by color!). As always, feel free to adapt, based on the needs of your learners!

Thumbprint Chicks

These thumbprint chicks are a cinch to create and make the perfect Easter card!  Dip your little one’s thumb into yellow paint and then stamp the paper. Use an orange marker for the beaks and feet and a black marker for the eye.  Feel free to encourage your child to add grass, a message, or any other creative touches!

Play dough Surprise Eggs

For an Easter egg twist, open plastic eggs and hide a letter inside (or a word for older kids!).  Then cover with play dough and let your little ones open their surprises! When they open them, challenge them to say the letter or sound!  

Easter Egg Letter Dyes

Dying Easter eggs is often a fun way to celebrate the Easter holiday. You can make this activity a bit more educational by using a white crayon to write on the eggs before your little ones dye them. Write their name to practice name recognition, letters, sight words, or any other things you want to focus on! Your little ones will love dying the eggs and seeing the words appear, and you’ve also snuck in some learning! Hooray!

Sensory Jars

Sensory jars are a simple and engaging way to keep little ones busy and learning. Even better, they can be customized to fit the needs of your learners!

Another idea is to fill the jar with alphabet letters in the rice to see how many letter names or sounds your little ones can find and say!

Valentines Crafts and Activities

Need simple crafts and activities for Valentine’s Day? We’ve got you covered!

Hide-and-Seek Hearts

Hide-and-Seek Hearts is super simple, but such a fun game for your kiddos to play. Cut out hearts (we went super easy with foam hearts, but any hearts will do!) and write a letter on each one. Then hide the hearts around your home or school for your kids to find! As they find each one, encourage them to say the letter sound or name. And make sure to have fun!

Confetti Heart Card

This confetti heart card will be a hit with your little one! It may require adult help to assemble, but the result is mesmerizing! Start by cutting a heart shape out of a piece of cardstock. Then cut a slightly larger heart out of both another piece of cardstock (we used pink) and a laminating sheet. Tape the laminating sheet over the original heart cutout, followed by the pink cardstock heart. When taping to the pink heart, leave a space at the top. Pour glitter in between the laminating sheet and pink cardstock. Finally, finish taping the top of the heart to make sure the glitter can’t escape, and voila! A fun, snow-globe effect of glitter in a heart-shape, making it the perfect Valentines card for your little ones to give out or keep for themselves!

I Love You Thumbprint Craft

This thumbprint craft can be completed in just a few minutes, but it may become artwork you will cherish for years to come! We used a mini-canvas with a magnet attached, so it could easily be displayed on the fridge. But feel free to use cardstock, watercolor paper, or whatever you have accessible! Dab paint on your little one’s thumb and help them make a heart shape with two thumb-stamps. After they wash their hands, give them a marker to write a message like “I love you.” Hang the final product on the fridge or give as a gift to someone you love!  

ABC Heart Letter Match

No prep time? No problem! We love this ABC Heart Letter Match. We wrote uppercase letters on sticker hearts we found in the Target dollar section, and then we wrote matching lowercase letters on a piece of paper. Give the paper and stickers to your little ones so they can match the letters. This doubles as a great fine motor activity!  

Sugar Cookie Hearts

Let’s be honest—sugar cookies are perfect for any holiday. Letting the kids decorate their own cookies adds extra fun and excitement— plus, it helps to keep those little hands busy!   

We hope you enjoyed our Valentine’s Day crafts and activities!

Chip Can Sorting Game

This game is super simple to make but highly engaging! Using some recycled chip cans, we made quick labels from construction paper with targeted blends.

The last step was to mix up the pictures and let the kids sort them into the right cans!
