Peep beginning sound and letter match game. Peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
PEEPS! It's not Easter without peeps. I just had to create a Peep Beginning Sound Match game. My pre-k students matched the beginning sounds, uppercase letters, and lowercase letters.
To make the game easier for my three year olds, I took out the sound cards and they only matched the uppercase and lowercase letter peeps.

Easter writing tray make handwriting fun. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Easter egg writing tray! This tray has purple sprinkles and bunny sprinkles in it. Students find an egg letter match then write the uppercase and lowercase letter in the tray. Writing trays are the best tool I use for practicing letters. Students get super excited when they see writing trays out! When was the last time your students were excited about handwriting worksheets? Um never right. Try writing trays in your classroom! It's a a game changer!

Easter egg build a sight word activity. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Easter Egg Sight Words! Students build their sight words using eggs then write the word on the recording page. For more fun, put the sight word cards in large plastic eggs!

Easter invitation to write for table time/morning work. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Everyone always asks me what I do for table time or morning work. Each morning I have different activities set up at each of my large tables for table time (aka preschool morning work). I often set up invitations to write using supplies from my writing center. This Easter themed invitation to write has Easter writing paper, Easter stickers, Easter word cards, and various writing tools. Go grab the FREE Family Word Cards HERE.

5 Little Bunnies Hopping on a Hill retelling activity. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Five Little Bunnies Hopping on a Hill is a subtraction book my little learners LOVE. It's similar to 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. As I read the book, each time something happens to a bunny a student takes one bunny away. Students are counting, subtracting, and rhyming when we read this book. Using story props makes books come alive for students. After we read the book several times during circle, I put it my library center. The math conversations students had as they reread the book using the bunnies was priceless!
I found these stuffed animal bunnies at the Dollar Tree.

Peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE plus all my favorite Easter themed writing, math, fine motor, sensory, literacy, art, STEM, and science activities for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Peeps are so sparkly and fun I just had to do a five senses activity with them! I created this Peep Anchor Chart to record how students described the peeps. Five senses activities are a fabulous way to build students' vocabulary. Don't be afraid to use big words with your little learners. If they can say tyrannosaurus rex, they can say anything! After we described the peeps, we had a Peep Taste Test. Students recorded how the peeps tasted on their recording page. Go grab your peep freebie HERE.

Easter STEM blocks center building challenges. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.

 In the blocks center I added fake flowers, plastic carrot eggs, plastic Easter eggs, spring stuffed animals, and EASTER STEM I Can Build challenge cards. Look at this amazing enclosure my pre-k student built. If you look closely you can see that he hid eggs in the flowers for an Easter egg hunt!
Easter egg and Peep play dough invitation to play tray. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Play dough trays are one of my students favorite things. I try and do a new play dough tray for each theme. This Easter play dough tray has egg cookie cutters, bunny cookie cutters, small plastic eggs, buttons, cut up pipe cleaners, eyes, and play dough. Students can roll, smash, and squish the play dough to create Easter eggs and peeps. Little to they know they are exercising their fine motor muscles as they play!

Easter themed sensory table (grass, foam eggs, scoopers). Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
The sensory table is filled with Easter grass, little foam eggs, egg cartons, and Handy Scoopers. Students can sort, count, scoop, hide, and fill the egg cartons with eggs. Plus the eggs are small so they are strengthening their fine motor muscles too as they they play. 

How to make Easter egg shakers for music and gross motor time. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Make egg shakers for music and movement or gross motor activities. It's super simple. Fill a plastic egg halfway with beans and tape the egg around the seam using washi tape. My last set of egg shakers I made lasted over 9 years! Laurie Berkner's song "I Know a Chicken" is the perfect song to use with egg shakers. Students have to shake the eggs lots of different ways. HERE is a link to a video of her song you can use.

Easter Bunny themed shape puzzles. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Bunny and Carrot Shape Puzzles! My students LOVED matching the bunny and carrot shapes.

Easter egg counting activity using mini erasers. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Number Easter eggs are a fun way for students to practice identifying numerals and develop one to one correspondence. Students identify the number on the egg, count out the corresponding number of mini erasers to fill the egg, and place the egg in the matching egg carton hole. (Plus it's another reason why I just had to buy those cute mini erasers from Target!)

Easter basket number sort game. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
There are so many different ways to represent a quantity (ten frame, tally marks, fingers, numerals, dice, objects). This Easter Number Sort game is the fun way for students to explore this concept. Students count ten frames, fingers, and identify numerals then match it to the corresponding Easter basket.

Easter jelly bean adding or counting game. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Jelly Bean Roll It, Add It game is perfect for Easter. Students roll two dice, add, and dot the total. I also love to give my students real jelly beans as a treat to eat when they play this game.

Easter egg sorting activity. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Sorting can be HARD for some students. Students can practice sorting the eggs by color and size. It's also important to practice sorting by other characteristics like glitter/no glitter or cracks/no cracks.

Process art for Easter... egg rolling art. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Have you tried egg rolling painting? If not, your should! It's just like marble painting but with eggs. Take a small plastic egg and put two marbles inside. I cut the paper in the shape of an egg. Students place their paper in the box then drop the eggs in the box. Students shake and tilt the box lid to make the eggs roll around, painting the paper as they roll.

Process art for Easter... egg printing. Plus peeps 5 senses and taste test FREEBIE. For preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten.
Another fun art activity is egg printing. Use a few plastic eggs in different sizes and patterned scrapbook paper. Students stamp the egg in the paint then stamp their paper.

    1. In the dollar section at Target last year. They has chalkboard eggs in them. You can use a typical egg carton and just cut it in half.

  2. Hi Jackie,
    I love your stuff! I have a 4 year old granddaughter and I can't wait to try out some of your spring activities with her. Where did you find the writing trays? My little one is a tactile learning and would so much enjoy this.
    Thanks,
