Let’s have a cracking time this Easter!
Easter is a traditional holiday celebrated worldwide, with one of the most beloved aspects being the Easter bunny and a fun Easter egg hunt. As well as the traditional Easter activities, there are plenty of other Easter-themed games to enjoy. These games can range from simple and fun, to educational and challenging.
Let’s ‘eggsplore’ some of the most popular Easter learning games…
Easter Egg Bingo
Easter Egg Bingo is a fun twist on the traditional game of bingo. Instead of numbers, Easter-themed pictures such as Easter bunnies, Easter eggs, and Easter baskets are used. Players are given bingo cards with these pictures, and as the caller calls out the picture, players mark the corresponding picture on their cards. The first player to complete a line or a full card is the winner.
Easter Memory Game
For younger children, a simple Easter themed memory game can be an excellent way to introduce them to the concept of memory and recognition. In this game, Easter-themed pictures such as Easter bunnies, Easter eggs, and Easter baskets are placed face down on a table. Players have to take turns flipping over two cards at a time, trying to match the pictures. The player with the most pairs at the end of the game is the winner.
Easter Word Scramble
Easter Word Scramble is another fun and educational game that can be played with children. In this game, Easter-themed words such as ‘bunny’, ‘basket’ and ‘egg’ are scrambled, and the players have to unscramble them. This game can help children improve their spelling and vocabulary while having fun.
Educational Easter Egg Hunt
The Easter Egg Hunt is one of the most popular Easter activities. It is a fun and exciting game that can be played with friends and family. The game involves hiding Easter eggs filled with candy or small toys in a designated area, and the participants have to search for them. To add an educational twist to the game, parents can label each egg with a number or a letter. The participants have to find all the eggs and then use the letters or numbers to form words or solve a math problem.
For those who prefer online games, there are many free Easter games available on the internet. These games are designed to be fun and engaging, while also providing an educational aspect.
