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.

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.

Materials Needed For Easter Egg Math Puzzle
Paper | Scissors
Laminating Sheets | Laminator
First, download and print the Easter Egg number sense game. I recommend printing on card stock or laminating for durability.
Cut out each piece of the game.
At this point you can laminate it. This is obviously not required, but I prefer to laminate to extend the life of the activity. Especially if multiple children or a whole classroom will use it.
Mix the pieces of the eggs side up on the table.
Have the child match the number with the dice that equal the number. This activity includes eggs for numbers 0 through 20, so this can be done with only a few numbers at a time or all of the numbers.
- You could turn the egg pieces upside down and play as a traditional matching game. Still matching the numbers but adding the practice of strengthening short term memory as well.
- You can use these to help with evens, odds, or other skip counting.
- Add pieces to a sensory bin. Kids can explore the sensory bin and find matches simultaneously.
- Have the kids build skip counting patterns with the egg puzzles.
