Easter is just around the corner, and if your students are anything like ours they are certainly hopping with excitement! We put our heads together and came up with a fun Easter themed sensory bin for our students to enjoy this time of year.
I found a capital/lowercase letter matching game using Easter eggs on Pinterest. All you need is 26 plastic Easter eggs in varying colors and a sharpie. On the top part of the egg we wrote the lowercase letter and on the bottom we wrote the capital letter.
Here is the original pin:
We tried to make sure letters that look similar were not written on the same color egg as to help students differentiate between the two. Once the eggs were finished we separated them and placed them in our sensory table with lots and lots of Easter grass. Angie has used Easter grass in her sensory table for many years and the students always love it.
Our students are having a lot of fun exploring the texture of the Easter grass while practicing their literacy skills by matching the letters on the eggs. This sensory bin is inexpensive, easy to clean, and easy to create.
We hope you will try this in your classroom and let us know the results!
