plastic easter egg number fun

As well as hiding chocolate, (and all the other wonderful uses), plastic Easter eggs are great for practicing number sense.

On one side of the eggs, I printed the numbers 0 through 10.

On the other side I put the corresponding number of dots.  I decided to use a ten frame format to reinforce that way of visualizing numbers.  

The number are matched with the dots.  This time I decided to use the same colour for the number half of the egg and the dots half of the egg.  Next week, I might change it up a bit ... make it a bit more challenging.

The finished eggs go into the basket.

What are you playing/learning/creating with plastic Easter eggs?

  1. Cute idea! I might do that with the digit and word. ... Or maybe the doubles facts.

    1. Doubles sounds like fun - my kids would like that too.

  2. Great idea....could you put items inside that correspond with the matched numbers/ dots too, to extend the activity...?

  3. What a great idea Sandi! I can use for math facts with my daughter.

    Very happy to find you from one of your comments at my blog. Thanks for your visit and comment.

    1. Plastic eggs have so many uses.
