Oh how we love to play learning games around in this house. Since it is Easter time, I made an Easter learning game for my kids. We did a fun spelling & sight word game with our Easter eggs today.
I filled the eggs with letter tiles to spell out my words. I made two different baskets- one for my son in 2nd grade with his words, and one with sight words that my kindergartner is learning to read. They each hid each other’s eggs in a different room and took turns searching for them. We have a tub of plastic letter tiles that we love.
Once the eggs were all found, they opened them and tried to figure out which words the letters spelled. They wrote their words out on paper after they figured it out.
This can also easily be used as a math game. I adid a batch of math problems for my son in the eggs. We have our milk cap numbers that I posted about here. I put 2 random numbers in each egg. Then he had the choice to add them or subtract them. For older kids it could be a multiplication problem, too.
