How is Easter already next weekend? Didn’t we just celebrate Christmas? In the spirit of the holiday, I created a few fun projects for our kids this week. With each one of our children at different academic levels, I wanted to develop an activity that would address each individual’s needs. Also as a combined family project, I brought back our Christmas Kindness Challenge and revamped it for Easter.
Be Grateful, Be Kind, Believe in Kindness
Little toys, tiny trinkets, a coin or maybe a dollar, these are some of the possibilities that fill our kindness challenge eggs. Over the next week, our family will find places around town or even on our spring break travels to place these little gifts of love. What would you put in your own kindness eggs?
Sight Word and Beginning Letter Challenge
Egg Fun for Four
Our four year old this week is working on beginning letters and recognizing site words in preparation for Kindergarten in the fall. On the outside of each egg is the letter of the word inside. At the $ section of Target I found an egg puzzle. On one side I placed shape stickers and the other number for review. Story starters are also typed up on other pieces of paper as a fun way to travel. Open up each egg, read the story starter and create a family story as you drive or fly towards your family adventure.
Motor Skills and Movement Challenge
Eggs & Movement
Our middle girl is working on strengthening her muscles. So for her eggs, we placed a variety of movement exercises to get her up, moving and engaging those muscles in a fun challenge.
Stem Questions in Context Challenge
Our oldest is working hard to master Stem questions in reading context. For her, I typed up a list of questions sent home by the school to use for her story retell.
