FREE Break-Apart Easter Egg Center Activities

Click HERE to find this FREE file on TpT


Do you LOVE the little plastic 'break-apart' Easter eggs that are around this time of year? For my Australian blog friends - you can buy the ones I did at The Reject Shop for just a tiny $2!

If you have not seen these eggs, they break in half, so that you can fill them up with Easter treats!


Use them in your classroom math and literacy centers, but putting content cards in them that can be sorted and matched. Put cards in each egg, and then pop all the eggs in a lovely Easter basket, for your students to select from.

The file I have created includes some basic number and letter cards, and some cvc word cards. I have included a worksheet for students to record their findings and also a blank set of cards for you to create some content-appropriate cards for your particular class.

Easter Writing Activities + Free Graphics

I have had some lovely requests to make Easter versions of  our best selling writing resources on TeacherspayTeachers. So while my darling little newborn has been sleeping, I have been creating!

I am very lucky so far - he has been sleeping and feeding to a routine we started with him the day we brought him home from hospital. I started it with our daughter when she was around 4 montsh old, but we thought we would give it a try early on with our newborn. He has taken to it like a duck to water! It helps me because I know what he will be doing at different times of the day. That means I get a little bit of time each day to do other things I love - like designing, creating, drawing and blogging!

I have also listed some FREE 'Spring Spinners" for you to use in your teaching files and activities. You will need to add your own numbers, letters or pictures to them. If you are using MS Word, put them in a text box. They are in pretty 'Spring' colours. I hope you like them :)


Thank you to everyone that has emailed me or messaged me through TpT with ideas for graphics - I am getting through all the requests gradually.

Crazy for Cubes - FREE Graphics

I had a request to do a graphic for a cube net. Why not create a FREE set? I thought to myself - so here it is! I hope you can use it to - please check out the terms of use when you download - they are quite simple, but email me if I can answer any questions for you.

Thank you to everyone that has sent me their kind wishes and congratulations for the birth of our gorgeous new bub! I am having such a wonderful time, and after seeing my little-miss-5 grow so quick, realise I have to enjoy every last second with my little man - they grow so fast!
I am trying not to miss my teaching job quite so much this time and just trying to savour the time at home nurturing my family. It is difficult at times though, and I guess the downside of loving my job so much. Those moments are very few and far between though, and reading all the wonderful blogs that I follow keeps me in touch with 'the classroom'.

Have a wonderful day!

One of my favourite included activities, is the Butterfly Puzzles, your students will enjoy finding matching tens and ones combinations to make the 2 digit numbers.

Thank You Free Borders


Download them HERE



What an amazing success the TeacherspayTeachers Leap Day Sale was! I scored some bargains that have been on my wishlist for ages! I cannot wait to get back to work next year to use them!!

A HUGE thank you to everyone that purchased something from either our teaching resources store or our graphics store. We try to keep our resources as affordable as possible for our buyers, aiming to offset the cost of running our little business and website. Thank you once again, each little purchase that was made has helped in a big way!

I have just listed this set of "Easter Colour Borders" - the colours used match the ones I have used in our other Easter themed graphics - so if you are looking for a snazzy border to go on your next Easter themed teaching resource, you may like one of these. I have kept them quite simple, as the eggs I made a few days ago, are quite decorative. A plain border will look great with them I think!

Thank you also to the wonderful people that have left me delightfully kind and thoughtful comments and feedback on TpT.

In the uncertain world of bringing a new baby into the world, one thing is now certain - I will have another March baby! Hope you had a great Leap Day!
