With Easter coming up we thought it was a great idea to use our little one's obsession with plastic Easter eggs to teach them all about the letters in the alphabet.  This Easter hunt is such a fun and engaging Easter activity for little learners.

We seem to have a HUGE collection of plastic Easter eggs and that collection just gets bigger each year. Here are some more ideas of ways you can use plastic Easter eggs.

Plastic Easter Egg Letter Hunt Instructions:

This Easter egg letter hunt is such a fun, but simple Easter time activity! To start, simply fill-up the plastic Easter eggs with foam sticker letter. Add one letter to each plastic Easter egg, or if you don't have 26 plastic eggs add a few letters to each plastic egg.

We love using foam sticker letters so that the letters can be stuck straight onto our letter printable, but if you don't have the sticker kind of letters you could always use mini letter magnets or foam letters and stick them to the printable with tape. You could even use small pieces of card with each of the letters written on them.

Hide the plastic eggs out in the yard (or inside the house) and let the kids go hunting to find the letters. This is the funnest part for them! You could give them an Easter basket each to collect their eggs in. Kids can either work on this hunt individually, as part of a team or even as a race to see who can find all their letters first.

Once they have found an egg they can open it to see what letter they have got. They now have to match the letters they find in their plastic eggs to the letters on the alphabet printable and you can watch them have fun learning!
