There are so many Easter-themed activities out there, I’m sure that just a quick Pinterest search would fill your lesson plan for the next two weeks. Unfortunately, to find the great ideas you generally have to sift through all of the duds, and the ads. So this week I’m going to do the work for you, I’ll be rounding up all of the best Easter activities so that you’ve got them all in one place!
It is so much easier to put together writing center activities when you have a theme that children really want to write about. Holidays are the perfect themes because little ones are already excited about using the vocabulary words and all of the associated shapes and colors. Here are some fun ideas for Easter-themed writing center activities.
- Put out Easter vocabulary cards to encourage children to write their own Easter themed words
- Find stencils shaped like bunnies, eggs, chicks, ducks, and lambs
- Add writing utensils like colored pencils and colored pens in pastel Easter colors
- Fold pastel colored card stock into cards
- Use magnet letters to spell Easter vocabulary words
- Write letters on the outside of plastic eggs and ask children to put the matching foam or magnet letter in the correct egg
- Cut egg shaped pieces of construction paper and ask children to decorate them by drawing different types of lines (dotted, squiggly, straight, etc.) across the egg
- Add Easter themed stamps and stamp pads
- Ask children to use a hole punch to punch holes in an egg-shaped piece of paper
- Write a letter on a piece of paper and ask children to cover the lines of the letter with jelly beans
- Give children scissors and tissue paper and ask them to cut thin strips in order to make their own Easter grass
