Homeschool Movement With Easter Eggs

HSS-3-15-2014

Here in the state of Washington it rains ALL the time. It is only sunny about 90-100 days out of the year and it can be quite depressing. As a homeschool mom, we want our kids to keep active and busy, but if your kids are like mine, they get bored with the same old activities. Recently I got a package of plastic Easter Eggs to use as a Math activity with my youngest.  After we completed the activity, he wanted more time playing with the eggs. On a whim I came up with some activities and they loved it!!!

Homeschool Activities Using Easter Eggs

The first activity they did was balancing an egg on a kitchen spoon.  Here are some things that we did:

  • Walk from the living room to the kitchen with the eggs without them dropping to the floor
  • Walk backwards from the living room to the kitchen
  • Walk forward two steps, turn and walk backward two steps and repeat

They enjoyed this new activity and did so well with it that I decided to turn it up a notch.  Here are some other things we did:

  • Balance the egg on a spoon and hop through the house (this did cause many “broken” eggs – good thing they were plastic:)
  • Crawled on the floor while balancing the eggs under their chin
  • Scooted all over the floor on their backs with their feet straight up and the egg balancing on their feet. This was quite hilarious! 🙂

We had a great time and really enjoyed it! This was just one idea of how to beat the rainy day blues. What are some of the ways you beat the blues or keep your kids entertained on rainy days, or snowed-in days for that matter?  I would love to hear from you!!!

In Christ,
