This is a great game that works on two different levels depending on the age of the child. For younger children it is a sensory experience where they can listen to different sounds and touch different textures. For older children it involve reasoning skills and memory skills. A great way to pass the time as a family and incorporate the holiday theme!

What you'll need:

  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Cotton balls
  • Rice (uncooked)
  • Coins
  • Jingle bells
  • Paper clips
  • Any other items you can think of!
How to play your Easter Egg Guessing Game:
  • For younger children: Let them touch each item before you place it in the egg. Let them watch you place each item in the egg and have them shake the egg to listen to the noise. Talk about the sound, for example is the noise quiet or loud, is it lots of little noises or a big thunk?!
  • For older children: Let them see each item laid out. Have them shut their eyes or blind fold them and place each item into an egg. Have the children shake each egg and guess which item is in which egg.
