FREE Easter Egg Center Activities

Easter Classroom Centers

Do you LOVE the little plastic 'break-apart' Easter eggs that are around this time of year? I got mine at the local dollar store 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! They last for years and years stored in a bin or container ready for your Easter centers and activities.

Use them in your classroom math and literacy centers by putting content cards in them that can be sorted and matched. 

I put cards in each egg, and then pop all the eggs in a lovely Easter basket, for my lovelies to select from. Perfect for a Bee Busy learning area!

I have a free file for you today that can be printed and used with some of these eggs. It includes letters of the alphabet in upper and lower case that have to be put in alphabetical order and recorded. 

From the Pond Mel Lloyd Teacher

Students use the picture on each card to match the recording page squares.

Alphabetical Order Printable

I do hope your little learners love cracking and sorting with this activity!

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.

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.

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!
