Easter is almost here. My daughter LOVES Easter! It slows me for a second because most kids like Christmas most, but she loves the hunt of the plastic eggs.

If she could get her hands on these eggs now we’d start the hunts now and it will continue for at least a couple weeks after the spring holiday.

They don’t have to be filled with candy either, because I know that’s probably what you were thinking. It is what I thought at first too. It’s not though. It’s the element of surprise and finding those super cute, colorful eggs!

I think that is why she loved these simple Easter egg math puzzles for number sense.

Simple Easter Egg Puzzles For Number Sense

For young children, learning 0-20 is not just learning the numbers. A child who has number sense understands the fluidity and fluency of each number. The understanding of how the numbers work together also involved.

One of my favorite ways to encourage a child to learn number sense is by presenting numbers in various ways, like with this Easter egg math puzzle. Matching the numbers to the dice is a fantastic way to see the same number in multiple ways.

To Prep: 
First, download and print the Easter Egg number sense game. I recommend printing on card stock or laminating for durability.
